Director's Message


The hot weather continues as we enter the dog days of summer! Back in Japan, the Olympic Games are coming to end. Even so, JCC will be continuing to shed light on the charms of Aichi and Shiga in August as part of our Zoom In! series. Look out on our Facebook and Instagram pages for interesting bites of information you may not have known about these prefectures! JCC has also set up an exhibition of items from Kanagawa and Shizuoka at our premises. Do come down to try your hand at puzzle boxes from Kanagawa, and marvel at the wooden crafts that Shizuoka is known for.

All these prefectures are ones that feature in a series of famous ukiyo-e prints known as The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido. Some of these marvellous works by Utagawa will be on display at the Asian Civilisations Museum as part of the ‘Life in Edo | Russel Wong in Kyoto’ exhibition. It is a rare opportunity to see these artworks so do go down to the museum to catch a glimpse before the exhibition ends its run in October.

This August, JCC will also be holding an online manga workshop. Manga artist Evangeline Neo held several popular talks and workshops at JCC and the Woodlands Regional Library in 2019, and JCC is delighted to welcome her back for an online workshop session! Slots for this workshop will be limited, so do sign up to be part of our mailing list to be notified as soon as registration opens!

To keep up with our upcoming programmes, remember to follow us on our Facebook and Instagram pages! Do also follow the Embassy of Japan in Singapore on their Facebook page for more news about Japan.
