Japan Culture Day, “Bunka no Hi (文化の日)”

On November 3, 2013, the community is invited to attend a Japanese holiday celebration event at the Buffalo History Museum.

The event is designed to introduce people to Japanese culture in a firsthand way that you just can’t get by watching TV or reading a book. This is an opportunity to view demonstrations and immerse yourself into the fascinating and steeped history of the Japanese people, through participation in traditions that are still very much current today. “Japan Culture Day, “Bunka no Hi (文化の日)”,  is a national holiday on November 3, and actually is held annually in Japan,” said Atsuko Nishida-Mitchell. “The purpose of the Culture Day is to promote culture and arts with freedom and peace. We would like to introduce Japanese Culture to the Buffalo community as well as to share the experiences with them. We have variety of ongoing activities such as Origami, Calligraphy, and Tea Ceremony stations. We also have Kendo demonstration, Ikebana display, and Japanese Culture Presentation. Most importantly, to interact with people each other!”
