I was impressed to see the Christmas lights of Regent street from the mall.
I took the photo when I visit the Mall Galleries.

Mumeishi 3’s 2017

The 2017 Mumeishi threes was held on Saturday 18th November.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was delighted to announce that
Hanamaruki company supported the Mumeishi 3’s!

Hanamaruki company gave us Liquid Shio Koji.

Clearspring Ltd also supported the Mumeishi 3’s!
Clearspring gave us rice cracker and offered 25% Off shopping!

Mumeishi members prepared for the event.
My position was cooking Japanese traditional meal for members before the day of Mumeishi threes, so I did not run Japanese Calligraphy class on Thursday…

 

 

 

 

Friday night, some Mumeishi members came to my house and we ate together. Then we went to set up the Mumeishi 3’s.

 

 

 

 

At last we finished the set up.

On the day, a lot of people came to attend the match.
Here is the site of photo album.

Japan Day in SOAS

I ran a Japanese Calligraphy workshop in SOAS.

The workshop was for sixth form students who are interested in studying Japanese.

The students could attend any workshop they wanted to, Manga, Japanese painting etc.

I was happy to run three classes.

 

I showed my Japanese Calligraphy items; brushes from Hiroshima, Ink chalk from Nara, Ink tank from Wakayama and paper from Tottori.

The students were interested in  the items.

They learned how to write with a blush.

They wrote good letters and seemed happy.

Their teachers took a photo and they were all happy.

 

I hope that they will take the chance to study Japanese and learn Japanese culture.
