The Japan Society and The Embassy of Japan are pleased to invite sixth formers to attend a FREE one-day course about Japan, its culture and its role in the global community. The day is designed to give insights into aspects of Japan, traditional and modern, through lectures and practical workshops.
It is aimed at students who are studying Japanese, but will also be of interest to those who have not had the opportunity do so formally at school, but who are considering doing Japanese studies at university. The course will feature lectures on Japanese culture, politics and economy.
Smaller elective workshops will allow students to explore a range of subjects, from taiko drumming, noh drama, and yosemoji calligraphy, to the contemporary world of anime. The day will include the UK premiere of 'Ehon' - a dramatic re-telling of Japanese stories with images and live musical accompaniment, and will end with a Japanese 'obento' style supper for those who wish to stay on. Information on Japan-related study and career options will give pointers on further opportunities, for students hoping to pursue their interest beyond school.
Places are limited and will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis.
