The second Japanese Cultural Experience of 2021:Making MIZUHIKI strap
The second Japanese Cultural Experience of this year took place on December 15, 2021. This event is held to deepen foreign students' understanding of Japan and local culture and exchanges between students including Japanese students. We held the "Making MIZUHIKI strap experience" on campus to the prevention of new corona-virus infections in this year.
--MIZUHIKI is a decorative string that can be hung on a gift bag, or a wrapping paper for gifts.
We invited Ms.Inami (Representative of "Mizuhiki art NAMIKA") and her assistant as an instructor of MIZUHIKI. Although the work was very detailed, the students were able to create very nice straps using their favorite MIZUHIKI, which they chose from over 200 colors！ It was a meaningful time to experience the traditional handicraft "MIZUHIKI" that know as traditional handcraft work in Kanazawa and Japan.
The Participants from Japan, China, Bangladesh, Thai and Vietnam deepened their exchange during the experiences, it turned into a great time for them to develop their understandings of Japanese and Kanazawa culture.
