Event description
Join Gill Russell from Hoylake, West Kirby and District u3a for an insight into Japanese Culture both old and new.

About this event

The culture of Japan, both old and new, from wood block prints to anime and maid cafes, is fascinating. This talk will focus on the historical elements looking at how some of them developed and how the long period of isolation ensured they did so with minimal influence from the West.

Gill Russell – Gill lived in Japan with her family for four years and while her husband worked in Tokyo, she taught at the Yokohama International School. She developed a keen interest in the culture and language of this amazing country and has revived that since retiring by joining a Japanese language class. She returned to Japan recently and found that although some things had changed, much of the traditional Japan remained. She enjoys sharing her experience with U3A groups and has used her interest to run a course for the North West Summer school.

This talk will be delivered online via Zoom
