首次身歷其境, 感受一下日本人對維護他們傳統文化的用心. 看著許多美籍日裔的孩子們和他們的父母, 在向長輩們問候時, 一起鞠躬彎腰, 得體有禮, 家教之好, 非常不易, 因為我看我周邊的華裔孩子, 真的這麼懂規矩, 能夠大方有禮的向長輩問候的還真不多.

不知道灣區有哪個華人節慶活動是很正式且多樣化的向別的族裔介紹我們中國文化的?? 印象中新年在舊金山有舞龍舞獅遊行活動, 除此之外, 還有別的嗎? 我不是很清楚, 不過這次看到日本人可以介紹茶道(Tea Ceremonies), 和服穿法和腰帶種類(Kimono & Obi Demo), 日本插花(Ikebana), 清酒, 摔角(Shorinji Kempo), 古箏(Koto), 吉他(Tsugaru Shamisen), 傳統舞蹈(Okinawan Dance), 麻糬敲打製作(Mochi Pounding) 打破清酒蓋(Kagami Biraki)等等, 很是佩服.

台灣有農曆新年的傳統服飾, 禮俗和慶典; 端午的包粽子和龍舟比賽; 元宵的放天燈, 鹽水烽炮和燈籠展; 中原的搶孤; 中秋的月餅; 原住民的祭典. 大陸, 香港, 新加坡也有其他很有特色的節慶活動, 也許是舉辦策劃有其困難處吧, 不然的話, 活動種類之多, 可非常有看頭的.

Hakone Garden平時舉辦的活動和課程很多, 對日本文藝活動有興趣的人, 可以上官網察看.

  2. Hello Sabrina,
    Thanks for your complaint and inviting me to join the group. Most of my works are for friends not really have a lot of professional experience.

    Heather
