I don’t have any degree in Art, Sociology, Philosophy, or other related fields to talk about “Culture” of Japanese people. However, one true thing is that I am a Japanese person who had never left Japan until the age of 18. I believe I can share my personal experience & understanding of Japanese culture on top of Sashiko: which is strongly related to the Sashiko culture I would like to pass down.

Let me know (via Insta-Story on 8/31) if you have a question related to “Japanese Culture and Sashiko”. I would like to understand what is going on. To be honest, in extreme situations, I don’t know what you don’t know. Therefore, I don’t know what to offer as a webinar series to fulfill something you do not know yet (what you want to know is based on what you know already… so I believe the first step is to bring us on the same page). Please do not send “How-To” questions. Please check Youtube Tutorials & consider Online Sashiko Class for the technical questions such as “How to do Sashiko”. 

In preparing the webinar, my brain becomes like a fountain of ideas. However, I have to be careful in bringing everyone together: instead of me going out of control with what I would like to insist. I am not a Folklorist or a Historian. I just share the stories – not the folk-tales or documents we can find in history. They are just stories. They aren’t  so much “History” or “Tradition”. What I share is an on-going difference in culture, and therefore, it can fulfill something missing in todays’ Sashiko. 

英語でウェビナーを開催することにしました(全編英語ですが無料なので良ければ登録下さい!)。頭をフル回転して準備している訳ですが、伝えたいことが止めどなく湧き出てくるのです。でも、興味を持って下さる方を置いてけぼりにする講演はしたくありません。まずは「前提を擦り合わせる」お話から始める必要があるのだと思います。

英語では一層顕著ですが、これは日本語でも一緒です。もし、日本的な”何か”について、僕に質問があればストーリーからDM頂けると嬉しいです。専門家じゃないので答えは出せませんが個人的な思いはお伝えできると思うので。
