JSA’s Bunkasai Celebration Educates Students About Japanese Culture https://tohoho.info/jsas-bunkasai-celebration-educates-students-about-japanese-culture/ Mon, 31 Oct 2022 03:31:11 +0000 https://tohoho.info/jsas-bunkasai-celebration-educates-students-about-japanese-culture/ For Austin Kellar, Bunkasai is a way for the Japanese Student Association to celebrate Japanese culture. “[Bunkasai] celebrates the importance of Japanese culture and Japan’s relationship with America,” Kellar said. “It’s just nice to appreciate a culture other than the one you grew up with.” Pitt’s JSA held its annual Bunkasai event in the William […]]]>

For Austin Kellar, Bunkasai is a way for the Japanese Student Association to celebrate Japanese culture.

“[Bunkasai] celebrates the importance of Japanese culture and Japan’s relationship with America,” Kellar said. “It’s just nice to appreciate a culture other than the one you grew up with.”

Pitt’s JSA held its annual Bunkasai event in the William Pitt Union on Saturday, with about 100 people in attendance. Because the event took place during the Halloween weekend, JSA chose to theme the party “Yokai”, not only to indulge in Japanese culture, but also to experience a bit of phantasmagoria.

Kellar, a junior Japanese and English literature double major, said Yokai are supernatural beings and ghosts in Japanese folklore.

“Yokai are essentially apparitions. They come from Japanese folk tales. So they can either be like creatures like Hitosume Kozowho was on our Instagram, or Kappa, the one that looks like a turtle. Or they can also be ghosts,” Kellar said. “They are basically any supernatural thing – ghost, creature, god.”

The event began with a slideshow highlighting the importance of Bunkasai and Yokai. The event continued with a performance showcase that included seven performances highlighting different parts of Japanese culture.

Kellar, co-president of social media and public relations for JSA, said Bunkasai is a cultural festival usually held in high schools across Japan. While living in Japan in high school, he said each class would usually choose a part of the festival they could contribute to, such as food, haunted houses, and decorations, and the classes would come together to bring their own to life. festival.

“Japanese high schools, you have to apply to get into them. Like the way we apply to college, they apply to high school. So it’s also an event to promote their school for people graduating from high school to think, “Oh, I want to go to this high school,” Kellar said. “So they promote Japanese culture, but also their school pride.”

Kellar said for the JSA that the main priority in organizing the event was to introduce Japanese culture to fellow students.

“Bunkasai for me is the chance for us, as the JSA Board of Directors and just JSA in total, is our main chance to show the great people of Pitt a different culture. And give them a chance to lean into a culture they may not know much about,” Kellar said.

The showcase kicked off when the JSA board performed a dance from the soundtrack of a famous anime, “Yo-kai Watch!” followed by a performance by graduate music student Devon Tipp.

Tipp played the shakuhachi, the traditional Japanese bamboo flute, and their set featured two different Japanese songs. The event also included a dance performance by Pitt’s student-run Asian Pop Dance Club, FRESA.

The showcase also highlighted another aspect of Japanese culture 一 martial arts. at Pitts Kendo club gave attendees an insight into Japan’s modern martial art, kendo, also known as the “way of the sword” or even Japanese fencing. The Kendo Club showed off their skills by performing drills and even allowed the crowd to watch a slow demonstration of how a kendo match usually goes. After the performances were over, the event then shifted its focus to another intricate part – the booths.

Natalia Lialine, JSA president and mathematical economics major, said people can experience different aspects of Japanese culture through the performances.

“Through the different performances, people can experience different aspects of Japanese culture. We have tried to present different [kinds] of performances, not just dancing or singing performances,” Lialine said.

Attendees made their way to the Kurtzman Room to check out a variety of booths showcasing Japanese food, toys, calligraphy, and Yokai. The booths also included other cultural clubs under the umbrella of the Asian Student Alliance, such as the Korean Student Association, Filipino Student Association, Chinese American Student Association, and Student Association Vietnamese.

Biology and sociology double major Susan Choy said she heard about Bunkasai through a friend. As a member of the Filipino Student Association, Choy said she wanted to support the JSA by participating in the event.

Choy said one of his favorite booths was the JSA advocacy booth.

“That’s where you spin a wheel and it lands on an image,” Choy said. “Then the person standing there tells you the story or superstition surrounding that image, and you have to guess whether it’s from Japanese culture or not. I thought that was cool. It’s a fun little fact .

The calligraphy booth had two parts – one where attendees were given a name tag written in katakana, the Japanese calligraphy, and another where they were shown a kanji character for three seconds and tried to draw it from memory.

Using their Stamp Rally paper, which they received upon arrival at the event, attendees walked around the venue visiting each stall to learn about Japanese culture and in return win a stamp. Once they collected six stamps, participants were able to exchange their paper for free sushi.

Choy said she was thrilled to see the JSA embrace and celebrate Japanese culture at Bunkasai.

“I think it’s nice to see people embracing their culture, and when they usually don’t. I think it’s awesome,” Choy said.

For composers Zach Johnston and Matteo Roberts, music is never an afterthought in storytelling.

The duo, collectively known as Pep Magic, are behind the score for Netflix’s new animated series, “Oni: Thunder God’s Tale.” Based on Japanese folklore, it follows the story of Onari, a free-spirited girl living among the gods and mythical creatures of Mount Kamigami. This includes his father Naridon, who wields his thunderous power through his taiko (“drum” in Japanese).

Johnston and Roberts collaborated with creator-director Daisuke “Dice” Tsutsumi in the early stages of “Oni”, allowing the music and visual concepts to directly draw inspiration and improvement.

“I think about visuals almost musically in a weird way, so I need their help even when writing a story or doing a painting,” Tsutsumi said. Varietyhighlighting how Johnston and Roberts are just as much filmmakers as composers.

The two weave traditional Japanese instruments with modern synths to create a nuanced, culture-driven score.

“Our number one concern is that I want to make sure that we respect Japanese music, but also make it our own,” says Johnston.

Pep Magic is a longtime collaborator of Tonko House co-founders Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo.

With Tsutsumi’s support and guidance, they felt comfortable enough to explore the mythological world of “Oni” through music, spending countless hours researching the art of taiko drumming and traditional Japanese scales. . Tsutsumi also provided personal reference material: folk songs and chants he learned as a child in Japan.

“I think when they come back with their intuitive approach and a solution, it often feels authentic,” Tsutsumi says. “And the reason I can say that is that it always makes me nostalgic when I hear the melodies they created for this show.”

The score features renowned Japanese flautist Kei Sakamoto and taiko player Shuichi Hidano; these musicians were recorded live in Japan while Johnston, Roberts and Tsutsumi oversaw the production remotely from California. For Tsutsumi, it was crucial to involve a myriad of Japanese artists for the anime epic.

“We still had a chance to be interactive with them and give them feedback after every take,” Johnston says of the musicians. “But it was really cool to get a few takes out and let them do their own. [thing].”

“The ideas were there, of course, but they really elevated that with their deeper understanding and experience of this music,” adds Roberts.

From shakuhachi to shinobues, Sakamoto tested over 40 Japanese flutes for the score, only 10 of which made it into the final recording. If a traditional shinobue was missing an octave, she would build herself a custom instrument to complete the melodic phrase.

“She brought so much emotion to the tracks, I feel like we were all trying not to cry the moment she started playing,” Roberts said. “The taiko and the flute brought so much humanity and warmth to the score.”

Ultimately, the harmony between the score and the visuals was crucial in illustrating the fantastic elements and enigma of “Oni”, from the landscape of Mount Kamigami to its inhabitants.

“I really like seeing the themes change as the characters develop – it’s really rewarding and it’s very emotional,” says Johnston. “I feel like we spent two years with these characters, so the themes are seared into our brains.”

“They are storytellers,” adds Tsutsumi. “What matters to me as a director is that, emotionally, it has to be honest – in the scene, to the characters. They always prioritize the emotion of the stage, and that’s what makes these two guys the most amazing songwriters, in my opinion.

Below, Tonko House shares a clip of the “Rhythm of Mother Nature” from “Oni: Thunder God’s Tale,” now available to stream on Netflix.

This story was originally published in The creators — a newsletter on the people who fuel the economy of creators. Receive it in your inbox.

Marie Kondo is a Japanese storage expert known for asking “does this item spark joy” when organizing homes. His first fan base was in person, based on his consulting business in Japan. Then, his audience expanded globally after his first book, The magic of life-changing storage, has been translated into 44 languages ​​and became a New York Times bestseller. Now her audience follows her online. She currently has 4 million Instagram Followers and two Netflix TV shows.

Kondo, 37, didn’t start his career online, but had to navigate a changing world. Her method of tidying up has since evolved into a lifestyle brand based on self-discovery and fulfillment by living in a home with only objects that bring joy. Fans can even become certified tidying consultants by taking classes in the KonMari Method, Kondo’s organization system. His craft as a ranger transforms frantic purging into a mastered craft, one meant to bring harmony not just to a house, but to its inhabitants as well.

Kondo emailed the Observer’s Rachyl Jones about building her brand and translating to social media.

Where did you learn the art of decluttering?

I was very close to my grandmother from an early age. Her thoughtful and considerate way of tidying up and taking care of her home inspired me to cherish what I own and to live with intention and care. As a teenager, I started researching organization, reading every book I could find on the subject, and really immersing myself in the world of decluttering. I then started my consulting business as a university student and that’s when I perfected my storage craft.

Could you tell me how the KonMari Method is influenced by Japanese culture and ideals?

When I was younger, Shinto shrines became a very important influence on my life and the development of the KonMari Method. I was visiting my nearby Shinto shrine so much that I decided to work there. There is a particular etiquette around driving in a Shinto. Many of these behaviors and rituals became ingrained in the KonMari method. For example, when you enter a Shinto shrine, you are entering a sacred space, so you should calm your mind, offer respect, and be prepared to enter the sacred area. I feel the same when entering a client’s home; home is a sacred space and practicing a thoughtful greeting when entering a home shows your respect and concern for the space in front of you.

You published a book in 2010, around the time Instagram was created. Which came first: the in-person or online fan base?

When I started my professional tidying career as a university student in Tokyo, I was just helping out my friends and family at home. It eventually started to take off so much that the waiting list of clients I had was going to last me six months of work. From there, I’d say the in-person fanbase came first. I published my first book in 2010 and it didn’t hit the US market until 2014.

How have you used social media to advance your career?

It’s an effective way to connect with my audience. This allows us to hear from followers, discover their inspirations, see what products they love, and learn what makes them feel connected to the KonMari brand and philosophy.

When the KonMari method started to become more popular, Instagram helped create a sense of community. It was a great way to keep my followers informed and connect on a more personal level. Instagram features like stories and in-app purchases also help make connections more impactful.

Could you describe the type of people in your target audience?

Our followers (who are mostly women) come to us from all over the world, but are united around a common love for storage. Their personal design and product preferences cover a wide range. Some lean on bright colors and can’t get enough organizing tools. Others prefer muted tones and a few accent pieces.

We often hear people associate the KonMari method with minimalism, but it’s actually quite different. I want people to embrace the bright colors they love, cherish the objects that make them happy, and commit to decluttering all aspects of their lives – all with the goal of living a more intentional, joyful life. . I think those who follow us really understand this concept.

What advice would you give to creators looking to take their brand to the next level, like writing a book or starring in their own TV show?

As a creator, it’s important to stay supportive and compassionate on your journey. When I started KonMari Media, our goal as a company was to organize the world by simply developing the most effective tools to help people choose joy and complete their tidying adventures. Today, that goal has evolved to help others choose joy. When your job is to pursue something you love, don’t give up, you never know what opportunities may come your way.
