In this global community, more people seem to enjoy Japanese influenced style, fashion and food on a daily basis. Even though going to Japanese restaurants or eating sushi seems to be common fair here in Canada, Japanese cultural matters are not very well known or understood yet. Through these kimono and Japanese culture workshops, we can learn traditional Japanese customs and basic Japanese social manners.

世界の様々な文化が混ざった 社会であるカナダでは、 日本の影響を受けたスタイルやファッションや食べ物はすでに多くの人々の日常的な暮らしに溶け込んでいます。日本食レストランへ行って寿司を食べるなどは誰もがしていることですが、日本文化が正しく理解されているか、は まだまだこれからのように思われます。日本の伝統文化やマナーは着物を着る文化と深く繋がっている という視点から、このワークショップは企画されました。日本の伝統的慣習や文化を考える機会を作ってみませんか?

The instructor/lecturer is Hitomi Harama, Kimono and Japanese culture specialist.

講師は 原馬仁美(はらまひとみ)
