It is “Culture day (Bunka no hi)” on November 3rd in Japan.
There are many Japanese people living in Melbourne who have great skills but do not have many places to present their abilities,
while there are many Australian people who love Japan and Japanese Culture.
These people do not have many opportunities to experience both traditional and modern Japanese culture.
All Performers, artists and work shop teachers are volunteers and happy to contribute their skills.
This event will not only help people understand and experience Japan’s beautiful culture but also make a stronger bridge between Australian and Japanese people in Melbourne.
