Mr.T.K. Tan (University of Hong Kong, Japanese)
Sayoko Shirotani

It was in last August I met Mr. Tan a t the first time because of the connection between Wanowa and Universities of HK and Taiwan. Mr. Tan is the coordinator of Faculty Of Social Sciences, the University Of Hong Kong. Because Mr. Tan is driving for many projects which are for raising the level of Japanese education.One of those projects is a short-term study travel plan to Japan. For this project, The University Of Hong Kong cooperates with a famous Japanese textbook company. (スリーエーネットワークさん)
Wanowa was committed to in charge of Japanese culture lessons. We taught many things about traditional Japanese play and also did the estimation of students. 《We come from HK, please give lessons!》Mr. Tan shows excellent ambition. In the short time, not only the University Of Hong Kong, the exchange with the Chinese University of Hong Kong, City University of Hong Kong, National Taiwan University, and Soochow University in Taiwan had been decided. Yasuko Takeda san and me went to HK, then Taiwan. During the period, we taught 3 or 4 lessons in turns each day. The students showed their eagerness in both 30 minutes classes and 2 hours classes. Then, 《Make the most of this chance!》The principle of the University of Hong Kong and Japan Information and Cultural Centre gave their great support to make 《Japanese culture time》event be produced. Japanese drum、Japanese harp 、bamboo flute 、poetry singing、Japanese dancing 、Japanese song、and the Chikamatsu。 The hall of the university of Hong Kong that has 300 seats was filled. Mr. Tan, who speaks fluent Japanese, is a versatile person. It is our pleasure to continue the exchange activity.

Mr.Yonetsu Sennji
12 years ago, because of the Chikamatsu "女殺油 hell" public performance, I encountered with Mr.Yonetus Sennji at the first time.
I had been consulted by Mr.Yonetsu Sennji when trying to make Chikamatsu to be understood easily in "Love Suicide at Amijima" performed last year.
“The Bashi tuskushi is important entirely, Chikamatsu have to be written in this scene -- therefore, don't cut her.
By indication of , the re-present for the first time in 283 years was able to be achieved by the Mr.友路 and Hatsumi's hard work. Thanks a lot for Mr. Yonezu's advice. The work was completed would remain forever.

The new year is coming
  Junko Otobe, Vice-President director
Io and Sakyo Komatsu office Representative director
 "Love Suicide at Amijima" is the second play of Monzaemon Chikamatsu performed by original word. I appreciate for the fortune which can be played with a living national treasure and the Tsurusawa Tomoji teacher, and the Hatsumi Takemoto teacher of a gidayu. This is earnestly based on introduction of Ms. Kobayagawa of a Bunraku association. Although I have so far joined activity which sends Japanese culture to the world as people from NPO Law, I believed that this second work plays a role of mediation of the deliver Japanese culture overseas. I believe it would be an enjoyment if you join our future activity.
