Bunkasai (Japanese cultural festival) 2015

October 24, 2015


The Japanese Program held its fifth annual Bunkasai on Saturday, October 24th in the Bliss Hall lounge. All students currently taking Japanese, as well as the Anime Club and TCNJ Kokikai Aikido clubs, gave interactive presentations. We learned about different regions of Japan, how to make a “teru teru bozu” doll to ward off rain, the Japanese comedy form “manzai” (replete with a demonstration), how to draw Japanese and American mascot characters, and much more!


Many thanks to Keiko Ishida-sensei for her wonderful help and enthusiasm in making this project a success.
