New program – “Cool” Japan Club starting in September
Calling all San Diegans! On Thursday September 17th at 6:00 pm, the Japan Society will be hosting an evening of entertainment for people interested in learning more about Japanese culture. We will be showing a video from a series called “Cool Japan”, a television show dedicated to delving into specific aspects of Japanese culture. During our first meeting, you’re invited to come to our office, try some Japanese snacks, and watch a video about Washoku, Japanese cuisine. At the end of the video, we’ll have a discussion about the varieties and methods of Japanese food, and taste miso soup with and without “dashi”, the flavor known to trigger the umami (savory) taste buds. This event will be open to all ages, and we hope that it can be an ongoing project with different themes and meetings every few months. Please let us know if you are interested in attending by either commenting on this post or by messaging us. For Japan Society members, this event will be free, and for non-members, it will be $10.
