As usual, we had a busy week at JapanCulture•NYC. Here are the highlights:
We wrapped up our coverage of New York Comic Con as guest blogger Tony Yao presented the final installment of his three-part series that maintained Japanese pop culture is still a vital part of the Con.
Asian Pop Culture Examiner May S. Young also wrote about NYCC, asking the question, “Where’s the Anime?”
We reviewed Hold These Truths, a wonderful one-man play by Jeanne Sakata and based on the journey of Gordon Hirabayashi, a Nisei who protested the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.
We also took a look at the latest ramen trends in New York with a video containing interviews with ramen experts and enthusiasts.
Check out our Events and Happenings section to see what’s happening this weekend and beyond. Stay tuned for more stories about Japanese culture in NYC on Monday.
