Director's Message


The heat of summer peaked in August, and JCC too, was heated up last month with an interesting line-up of events for our Friends of JCC! It warmed our hearts to see families attending our online origami and manga workshops together. It was also a delight to see so many food lovers tuning in to our special Facebook Live webinar and cooking demonstration to learn more about Japanese castella.

Though the weather will start cooling down in September, JCC will continue with a fiery line-up of events! This month, JCC will be hosting an Ikebana exhibition by Ikebana International Singapore Chapter 135. The autumn equinox is celebrated differently in Japan and Singapore, and indeed, this exhibition will feature a blend of both cultures. We welcome everyone to visit and marvel at the seasonal blooms that will be display at our premises.

In addition to Ikebana, JCC will also be continuing its Zoom In! series. For the past few months, we have been introducing prefectures that feature in a series of famous ukiyo-e prints known as The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, with this month’s spotlight being on the final two prefectures: Shiga and Kyoto. Make sure to keep an eye on our social media pages and e-magazine for interesting articles about these prefectures! Do also visit the Asian Civilisations Museum to see ‘Life in Edo | Russel Wong in Kyoto’, where you will be able to catch a glimpse of some of these classic prints by Japanese artist Utagawa.

To keep up with our upcoming programmes, do follow us on our Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as on the Embassy of Japan in Singapore’s Facebook page for more interesting news about Japan!
