And thus the virtual curtain falls on Nadeshicon 2021!

Thank you for joining us in learning about the various arts, traditional and modern alike, that shape Japan. Thank you for sharing your passions with us through your panels and making us fall in love with them in turn. Thank you for exploring haunted houses and taking on 98 Tetris opponents with us. And, of course, thank you for visiting the virtual dealers room, for supporting local artists and merchants, and for… taking part in the great slimes versus chickens war? Or was that but the first skirmish in a long upcoming conflict…
To be continued next year!

The tea ceremony will go beyond a simple sensory experience!

Presented by Reina Sakao, the tea ceremony will highlight just how culturally significant tea is in Japan. Every gesture, every motion is steeped in the history of this practice and of this beverage, making for a mesmerizing experience. Jacinthe will also be joining the ceremony on the shamisen, further enhancing this unique experience.

Go beyond mere words with Shoho Teramoto of Club de shodo de l’Espace Japon!

Oftentimes, writing is seen as nothing more than a series of recognizable symbols that make up groups known as words. However, the act of writing in itself can be, even is, art, and calligraphy puts that aspect at the forefront. Elegant and serene, this traditional artform still thrives in Japan where Shoho Teramoto studied it since the age of six. Discover and learn more about this mesmerizing practice at Nadeshicon 2021 online.
