Antique Kimono Exhibition “Power of Design”, an extraordinary experiencing at Globus Washitsu.  The exhibition is beautifully curated by Japanese Culture Style. It felt I was in a jewel box which I was extremely excited to discover treasures. Thank you for keeping the beauty of culture and sharing the amazing history with us.

Japan Society hold a lecture “Taste of Home Series Flipping Out: Okonomiyaki”. Okonomiyaki (okonomi: whatever you want/ yaki: grilled) cooking demonstration was run by Chef Shigenori Matsumoto on the stage with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto who brought unexpected very humorous conversation. We could hear delicious sizzling noise and smell the flavorful Japanese pancake, and LOVE their entertaining stage manners…I love Hiroshima style Okonomiyai which use more vegetable than Kansai style. From this lecture I learned that Tofu Okonomiyaki would be a great way to add protein for who is a vegetarian like me. I am going to cook Okonomiyaki in this long winter!

Our scenes could tell the season changing that a temperature raise or goes down, young green leave start to come out or colorful foliage drops the end of fall season. However, how much we know how deeply the four seasons involves in our life style or arts? Learning more appreciation of four seasons that we have. ‘Japan and the culture of four seasons’ -Haruo Shirane
