Director's Message

The Christmas Light-Up of Orchard Road and the surrounding area of Japan Creative Centre begins from mid-November and JCC will be filled with the spirit of seasonal celebration. We hope that the events at JCC will also give the visitors joy of a taste of Japan and help you enjoy the spirit of the seasons.

The highlight of October was definitely the Bunraku performance of “Love and Mercy: Into the World of Bunraku,” at the Drama Centre Theatre (DCT) in celebration of JCC’s 10th Anniversary! For many Singaporeans, it may have been their first time watching a full Bunraku performance and we are delighted to have been able to present a rare opportunity to introduce one of the most refined forms of traditional Japanese arts, one which has been designated as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. We are grateful to the strong support by many sponsors to realise this performance. We also appreciated very much the enthusiastic response by the audience. We sincerely hope the Bunraku performance has inspired many people in Singapore and will remain long in their hearts.

JCC will continue to present a varied menu of events for the month of November, with a focus on Japanese delicacies! The first half of the month will feature a special two-part exhibition by Niigata Prefecture and Tsubame-Sanjo City, showcasing gastronomical delights and high-quality culinary tools. JCC Cinema will also return at the end of the month with a showing of "Dad’s Lunch Box".

There will be many more exciting programmes, so please do sign up to be a Friend of JCC or follow us on our Facebook page to keep up to date with us! We have also recently joined Instagram, so do follow us at @japancreativecentre for a look behind the scenes as we work on events! The Embassy of Japan's Facebook page has also started posting regularly on Japan-related topics, so we encourage you to check it out for more information on Japanese culture and travel.

We look forward to welcoming you at our future events!
