We joined Japanese Paper Making Event hosted by Setagaya Citizens Society for Overseas Study. Around 30 participants were good mix of people from everywhere like Qatar, Sweden, Cote d’lvoire, England, Vietnam, Japan….

We were impressed that as many as 10 personnel were volunteering to make this event go smoothly.
Under their instruction, we made postcards, lamp shade, and Japanese traditional decorations for New Year, which are all made of
Japanese “washi” paper! Getting to know new people from all over the world while learning how to make washi was the greatest part of this event.
We realized that besides discussion sessions we are holding every week, this kind of hands-on activity also makes the world even more borderless!
