Ice-Shaving Machines

Ice-Shaving Machines

JLTAWA has purchased two ice-shaving machines, to lend out to JLTAWA members, at no charge.  If you have an upcoming Japanese cultural activity day, what could be better than a delicious and refreshing kaki-gori to top off the day?  JLTAWA members may book either one or both machines for a week at a time, by contacting Anne Ashby at aashby@mlc.wa.edu.au.  All you need do is pick up and drop back the machines, but the hire is free.
We hope this purchase will benefit many members.
