Welcome to the first edition of our quarterly e-magazine. The articles will enlighten you on the vision and passion that led to the creation of the Institute in the heart of Norwich, the valuable treasures of our Lisa Sainsbury Library, how we endeavor to be part of our local community and many hidden joys related to Japanese arts and cultures. In the future, this e-magazine will be sent exclusively to those who sign up to become a ‘Friend ‘ of the Institute. So hurry up and don’t miss the opportunity! – Mami Mizutori, Executive Director
