SSCA offers a variety of special events in Sunnyvale involving both Iizuka and Sunnyvale communities. In the past we have held a cherry blossom picnic with bento lunches (known as hanami in Japan), cherry tree planting ceremonies in Sunnyvale schools and parks with trees donated by the Iizuka, as well as a innovative robotics class for middle school students taught by visiting university students from Iizuka.
