On a rare sunny and beautiful January day, 12 JET Alumni and friends enjoyed skating on the Rideau Canal and eating Beaver Tails while reminiscing about their time in Japan. Following this we ate west coast-style Japanese food at “J: Unique Kitchen,” a new Japanese Restaurant in Ottawa, and then spent 3 throat-destroying hours singing Karaoke at PopStar Karoke! 超楽しかった！
It’s January again and although it’s cold out, JETAA Ottawa is always keen to put on events. This month’s event is skating on the canal and then dinner at a neat new sushi restaurant. If there’s interest, we’re also considering going to karaoke after dinner too.
It’s skating season and where better to skate in Ottawa than on the Canal! Once again, if you don’t have your skates, we will be subsidizing skate rentals for JET alumnus and a plus one. We welcome all participants, including and especially kids!
