Nippon Culture

Ever since the inception of the festival, NIPPON CULTURE has enriched the film program by offering various workshops, lectures, concerts, performances and exhibitions. This year, too, you can experience Japanese culture from its traditional roots to contemporary life in more than 50 events. Discover Okinawa’s dyeing technique ‘bingata’, arrange a set of sounds to score a short film or make your own soybean paste (miso). A series of talks with assorted filmmakers and a panel will complement the film program. Be all ears! Haru Nemuri will get you move your body to an exquisite mix of Rock, Hardcore and Rap. Be enchanted by Mutsumi ARAGAKI’s virtuous play of the string instrument ‘sanshin’ and her creative visuals or experience acclaimed taiko player Ichitaro’s unique talent.
