Antelope Canyon

Photographer Peter Bowman is sharing a new exhibit of photographs with us. This series of photos was taken in Arizona from deep inside Antelope Canyon, one of the many slot canyons of that region. The light and color he has captured in these photographs is nothing short of amazing. It's really something you need to see for yourself to believe.

Join us for another Japanese Sword Demonstration!

Join us this coming Saturday (5/23/15) in celebrating Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month with our yearly Japanese sword demonstration.
