After our AM language classes, we attended a lecture from Dr. Brown of Randolph-Macon College on Japanese Religion and History. The lecture encompassed the difference between stereotypical Japanese religion and the actual practices of Buddhism, Shintoism, and more. Religion in Japan is more abstract and nuanced, as opposed to a solid sense of religious belonging in the U.S. Special thanks to Dr. Brown for the lecture and for bringing samples of the Japanese cultural item, the ema, for us to view. ありがとうございます!
In the evening we completed our final step of our woodblock project: printing. It was great to see our creations take their final form, and the whole process has been a joy for everyone. Thank you to Emily-先輩 (senpai) for your instructions, time, and help!
