Ever wanted to learn more about Japan and its culture? The Japan Club is made up of a diversity of students who love, appreciate, or want to learn more about Japanese history and culture.
Freshman, Janessa Bitter revealed her reason for joining was that “I’ve always been interested in learning about Japanese culture… I’m hoping to get a better understanding of Japanese culture.”
Members will get to experience Japanese culture through movies and games such as Shiritori and Kabaddi as well as special monthly activities and cultural festivals.
At their September 27th meeting, the Japan club was joined by some of Snow College’s International students from Japan. The International students worked with members to figure out their names in katakana as well as choose their names in kanji.
Members of Japan Club come to have a good time and learn. Some activities that they have planned include movies, and authentic Japanese snacks and games.
“Ever since I was young I enjoyed the Japanese culture.” Japan Club member, Lorie Weikel recalled, “I initially got into it because it was so different from American culture and yet so similar… It interested me.”
Japan Club is always open to new members. Gustavo Huerta, Japan Club President remarked that their members “feel really connected to each other.”
When some people think of Japan Club they think of anime, however, the Japan Club is much more than that. It allows its members to connect with one another and learn new things about a different culture.
Japan Club meets every Tuesday at 7:00 PM in room 310 of the Lucy Philips Building. Those who are interested are welcome to come.
