The performances provided an opportunity for students majoring Japanese Studies and many youngsters who love “the country of cherry blossoms” to socialize, experience and develop their knowledge about Japanese culture and people, thereby making them more passionate about their major.

The featured arts performances included tea ceremony, Shinobue’s flute playing in combination with Shakuhachi and Piano, paper-cutting (Kirigami) and paper-folding (Origami).The stunning show began with a special flute performance titled "Homeland" and ended with a traditional Japanese folk song. In the tea ceremony show, students were instructed to make their own tea, which was then served to them with cakes and added a unique Japanese tea flavor.

The students particularly enjoyed crafting papers (Kirigami and Origami) and received many unique and meaningful gifts for their products.

The teachers at Maine no Mori Unesco club deeply impressed USSH’s teachers and students with their unique and talented performances.

“This is the first time I’ve interacted with Japanese traditional arts. I most enjoyed the flute playing and singing in the tradition art session. The sound of Japanese flutes is different from that of Vietnamese flutes, and the singer’s voice was touching. I’m glad I have attended this interesting show”, said Nguyen Thi Thu of the Division of Japanese Studies after saying goodbye to the Japanese Artists.
