On 22 October 2017, members from NUS JSS attended the Japanese Calligraphy Art Exhibition at the Luxe Art Museum and were honoured to receive a guided tour as they learnt about the different calligraphy types in Japanese calligraphy. There was also a demonstration by 5 skilled calligraphers, followed by another workshop where the members practised their calligraphy skills on set. Thank you Japan Calligraphy Art Academy and Sunstar​ for giving us this rare and enriching opportunity!

The exhibition is still on till 25 October 2017, so do head down if you are interested!! :)

Yesterday, SMU Japanese Cultural Club (SMUJCC), NTU Japanese Appreciation Club (NTUJAC) and NUS Japanese Studies Society (NUSJSS) gathered to hold the annual inter-uni collaboration, "Tsukimi Festival" at SMU. Participants came down and had a chance to watch a Japanese tea ceremony by our NUS Sado Club up close, experience Japanese calligraphy guided by NTUJAC and even write well wishes on lanterns with the help of SMUJCC! Ending off the event with traditional snacks, students from various universities were able to come together and interact with one another. We hoped everyone had an enjoyable cultural experience and see you again next year! ヾ(^∇^)

This month, NUS JSS will be collaborating with NTU and SMU to bring to you all "O-Tsukimi (お月見)", happening on October 20th at SMU! �

Tsukimi, literally meaning "moon-viewing" can be referred to as Japan's Harvest Moon Festival, bearing close resemblance to the Chinese's Mid-Autumn Festival.

Participants can expect to try out various traditional snacks, tea ceremonies as well as many other interesting activities! If you are interested in having your very own Tsukimi experience in Singapore, you can sign up via this link�:
