The Japanese Cultural Society is the only local social organisation which actively promotes Japanese cultural activities & offers its members excellent opportunities to sample the unique Japanese cultural experience in Singapore.
Traditional Japanese drums have, in most cases, origins from festivals. This music called the "Taiko", switched with ease from battlefield to shrine worship. The drum music today, however, plays a new role. Its dynamic rhythm is used to celebrate openings and grand occasions. The instruments of drummers have also become more diversified, and other instruments such as the flute, gong, etc., found their way into the group.
Apart from origami, the club offers other basic Japanese craft lessons such as 3-D relief art, pinched fabric art and washi paper crafts as part of understanding the art and culture of Japan.
Buyo - Japanese dances, is a popular pastime among the Japanese, from the young to old. In the past, following the prohibition of Kabuki dancing by women, all professional Japanese dancers were men.
