Introducing [2/11] of our JCN Line-Ups 🌙: NUS Nihon Buyo Club 「シンガポール国立大学日本舞踊部」

Nihon Buyo is directly descended from Kabuki, which is in turn influenced by other performance genres such as Noh, Bunraku and folk dances. The NUS Nihon Buyô Club is tutored by Ms. Onoe Kikusui (尾上菊水) who is a professional Nihon Buyô instructor based in Yokohama, Japan. The dance, Sakura Sakura, depicts maidens as they admire the beauty of the blooming blossoms and the fluttering of the petals in the wind. Soran-bushi is a well-known folk dance with origins from the fishermen of Hokkaido. Lively and energetic, this dance brings out the spirit of summer.

We would like to thank Nissin Foods Singapore for supporting our event! 😊

**NISSIN FOODS will be having their own booth during JCF. Participants can expect to sample and buy their various flavoured cup noodles!! 🍜

The NISSIN FOODS Group is the pioneer of instant noodles. Momofuku Ando, the founder of Nissin Food Products, invented the world’s first instant noodles, Chikin Ramen, in 1958 in Japan. While their roots are in Japan, instant noodles have become the “Global Diet” and 100 billion units are now consumed every year throughout the world.

It was the invention of the Cup Noodles in 1971 that propelled the Nissin brand to global heights. The Cup Noodles was revolutionary as it combined three functions: a packaging material while on store shelves, cooker when boiling water is poured in, and a bowl when eating the noodles.
