What Happened at Japanese Culture Night!?!?

1 5月

Last Friday Rice of Life hosted a Japanese culture night… though it started more in the evening and went on into the night. Calligraphy teachings, demonstrations of Naginata, and Japanese food. The Koto players for the evening, Nobuhiro Kaneko and Tomoki Tamashige, are recognized as the top high school artist of Koto in Japan. We were also privileged to have Yoshino Ushijima perform songs from her upcoming album to debut sometime this year, she is a talented gospel and R&B artist. As well the food! Thankful for all those who attended and brought the Japanese food, Japanese Culture night would not have been complete with out you!

For our final event Yoko Nakagawa, a regular attendee at Rice of Life, shared about being Japanese and her love for Japanese culture. It was amazing to hear her experience of becoming a Christian in Japan at a young age even though 99% of Japan is Buddhist, Shinto, or do not believe in God.  She truly has a remarkable story and is a living testament that a Japanese person who loves her culture and heritage can also be a Christian and love the God of the bible.

The following are some videos and picture from the culture night. We are very thankful to Noriko who took most of the picture during this event. They can all be viewed here.
