Issue 02 January 2013

The year of the snake brought with it much snow and freezing temperatures to Norwich. We hope that you will enjoy the second edition of our e-magazine in the warmth and comfort of your home or office. If you appreciated our first e-edition, you will be delighted to discover more about the Institute and Japanese arts and cultures. The Friend’s scheme that we launched last year has already had a good start. To date we have hosted two exciting events for our friends: a book launch by Research Director, Professor Nicole Rousmaniere, and a New Year’s party at 64 The Close. As we previously announced, in the near future this e-magazine will be an exclusive treat for members of our Friend’s scheme. Please hurry and sign up! – Mami Mizutori, Executive Director
