Family Picnic

Today I joined the family picnic, organised by Albany-Area Japanese community, at "Indian Ladder Farm(". There were over 30 people to join this picnic. Each of us brought 2 meals and I brought "Inari-sushi(a kind of Sushi)" and "Samosa(a kind of dumpling but Indian style)". Other people brought rice ball, fried dumpling, Japanese noodle, fried chicken and so on. I focused to eating and did not see beautiful view. I took 2 of my friends, Taiwanese and Spanish Girls. They liked Japanese food very much and they eat a lot, too. I was so happy to see them.

My wife is Japanese, and we are looking for a Japanese community here in Albany for her benefit, and for the benefit of our 2-year-old son.

I have not been able to find any information. Can you help me?

Thank you!

Hi Craig,

Of course I can.

There are some "play-groups" for children, "Japanese language & culture goup" for elementary school children and "Japanese Cultural Association of the Capital District". I can introduce organisers. Please send me an E-mail (E-mail :!
