Director's Message


September has been an eventful month at JCC, especially on our Facebook page. Together with Kikkoman and Alchemist, we presented an online event about Japanese shoyu. I was happy to see so many people tune in to the presentation and leave such lovely comments! I hope that everyone learnt more about the history of Japanese shoyu and that you will stay tuned to more informative events relating to Japanese food culture and history.

Ikebana also returned to JCC: “Moonlight Rendezvous ~ An Exhibition by Ikebana International Singapore Chapter 135 ~” opened on 27 September, delighting visitors with exquisite autumn-themed arrangements inspired by haiku. “Moonlight Rendezvous” will run until 6 October, so make sure not to miss your chance to see these beautiful arrangements.

October will see more exciting events at JCC. Besides the Ikebana exhibition, we will also co-host a third gold-leafing workshop online with the Ishikawa Prefectural Government Office. After the enthusiastic response from our Friends of JCC for the first two workshops, we look forward to this opportunity to have more people participate in this fun activity.

I am also delighted to share that the Japanese Film Festival 2021 is now open! With such a wide range of films available - from classic to contemporary - film enthusiasts will surely be able to find a title that will resonate with them! This edition of the festival will also be held in hybrid form, so movie-goers can choose to watch films in theatres or at home.
