Japan Day Sheffield University 29th April 2012

These guys are giving all the profits to itsnotjustmud 🙂

Facebook Event (I am going)

Welcome to Japan Day 2012, hosted at the University of Sheffield.

“Looking towards a Rising Sun”

Japan Day is a showcase of the wonders of Japan. We bring to you our concept of MODERN vs. TRADITIONAL. Set in a traditional fishermans village we bring to you both features of typical Japan and features outside the stereotype. Additionally, take a journey to our modern Japan highstreet setting- complete with karaoke, obake yashiki (haunted house) and a maid/butler café.
If someone says “Japan”, you might think of Samurai, Geisha, innovative technology, wacky fashion trends and pop culture. We aim to create awareness of these features as well as awareness of the ongoing struggle with recovery in Japan after the Tsunami.

Therefore all profits from this event will be going to our chosen charity: ‘It’s Not Just Mud’. More information here:http://itsnotjustmud.com/

Additionally, inkeeping with the Japanese belief that if you make 1000 Origami Cranes, a wish for health or recovery will be granted, we intend to make 1000 origami cranes before and during the event itself as a token of goodwill.

We are pleased to announce that the MAIN STAGE will showcase:
~ Martial Arts performance
~ Taiko Drumming by the brilliant Joji Hirota!
~ Koto Performance
~ A sword demonstration
~ University of Sheffield Soran Bushi group
~ Nihon Buyo, performed by Amie MinYoung Kim.
