Eagle Junction State School in Clayfield Celebrates Japanese Day

The Eagle Junction State School in Roseby Avenue is celebrating Japan’s rich culture by hosting a Japanese Day.

Scheduled on Wednesday, the 26th of June 2019, the Japanese Day festival, also known as Nihon Matsuri, will run from 8:35 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. by the school library.

Activities during this event will include a showcase of Japanese music and art through drumming performances and calligraphy. The highlight of the event will be a rakugo, a unique form of Japanese entertainment.

During the rakugo, one person sits on stage and uses paper props to tell a story. The themes are usually comical and the storyteller plays up the characters by changing the tone of his voice.

At lunch, bento boxes from SAKANA Japanese Dining Bar will be distributed to the guests.
