Only to see this, though:
April 3-4, 2004: The 11th Houston Japan Festival will be held at the Japanese Garden in Hermann Park. For two days in April, Hermann Park will be transformed into a Japanese village surrounding The Japanese Garden. Special highlights will include: a traditional Tea Ceremony, Koto music, dance groups, drummers, martial arts specialists, Japanese games, traditional Japanese arts and crafts, and many other cultural art demonstrations and displays. Food areas will offer authentic Japanese foods. For more information, please call 713-963-0121 (Japan-America Society of Houston) or visit http://www.jashouston.org/main.html?section=festival.
From the Calendar of Events page for the Consulate-General of Japan at Houston. I started feeling bad about mentioning all the stuff going on in Chicago around Ginger and Karin, so I had a look for the nearest embassy or whatevah. . .
Or I could have a look at the Japan America Society of Austin site, but have already mentioned how I'll be flying in to Austin for a visit. Because I am so not driving in -- hell, or to -- Texas.
Except, apparently, for the Festival. . .

Not much point visiting the JASA page after all.
Well, there's also a list of Cultural and Japan-Related Organizations in Texas and Oklahoma to look over.
