“On January 25, 2014, Yoshinari Miyata 8 Dan Hanshi was inducted into the Bunka Hall of Fame for his excellence in and contribution to Japanese Traditional Martial Arts for Kendo, through which he has enhanced relationships in our community by enlightening all to the culture of Japan as practiced here in America. The Hall of Fame is sponsored by the Japanese American Association of Northern California, also know as Hokka Nichi Bei Kai, the oldest Japanese American Community organization.”
Many, many congratulations to Miyata-Sensei.
