Director's greeting message


Despite the fact that the heat has been sweltering in the past month, I have seen an increase in the number of people on the streets, and a buzz of activity returning to all parts of Singapore. It is indeed wonderful to see everyone slowly adjusting back to the norm. Having said that, I hope that everyone continues to take utmost care, especially given the burning heat.

We are thankful for the warm response to the JCC Cinema screening of eBELLEf, as well as the furoshiki workshops. It was a great pleasure to see both new and familiar faces at JCC enjoying and immersing in Japanese culture.

This month, please look forward to our upcoming exhibition co-organised by JCC and MUJI. It has been over 40 years since the establishment of MUJI in Japan, and no doubt, MUJI has released a wide variety of products since then. I am sure that everyone is familiar with MUJI, and may have a few personal favourites among what MUJI has to offer. For this exhibition, you will be able to learn more about the inspiration behind the making of selected products. So do drop by JCC to check if your favourite item is on display, and take a closer look at the story behind it!

To keep up with our other upcoming events, please follow us on our Facebook and Instagram! You may also follow the Embassy of Japan in Singapore on their Facebook page for the latest news and updates from Japan.
