022: Rio Saito

Rio Saito is Program Manager at the Japan America Society of Minnesota (JASM). She is also a professor at MCAD and assists with events there in addition to her work with JASM. We talk about Rio’s background in the arts, the many local events highlighting Japanese culture, and one distinctly Japanese tradition that she would like to introduce to the Twin Cities (hint: it involves drinking sake).
