A "Polished" Approach to Studying Japanese Culture

On November 19th, Neumann University students, members of its chorale and the school community traveled from Aston, Pennsylvania to visit the Japan Information Center at the Japanese Consulate to enjoy a lesson in Japanese culture. The visitors were warmly welcomed by two Consulate officers and an intern, all clad in beautiful kimonos, who led the interactive exploration of Japanese culture. The presentation included the important cultural significance and proper manner of bowing, and the traditional art of Suminagashi which is the creation of marbled ink patterns. Suminagashi can also be used as a technique to dye kimonos, fans, and other types of fabric or paper.
