Japan Creative Centre

October 2014


This September, JCC hosted a couple of events one of which was a collaborative exhibition entitled “Ikebana Inspired by Baba and Nyonya”. This exhibition blended traditional Japanese Ikebana with peranakan culture. The exhibition featured various flower arrangements, some of which used traditional flowers. As part of the exhibition, there was also a demonstration done by Mr Bernard Tay who explained his creations step by step. Also held in September was a Shogi (Japanese Chess) workshop done by professional Shogi player Ms Madoka Kitao. Ms Kitao brought in her own original creation “Let’s catch the lion” and taught guests how to play the game.
