THE JAPANESE SOCIETY


horizon
/həˈrʌɪz(ə)n/
noun
1. the line at which the earth’s surface and the sky appear to meet

The Japanese Society emerged as a collaboration between Soka and Keio Universities in Japan and St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University in the Autumn of 2018. The Society is a point where two divergent cultures meet and interact : striving to provide a space of learning and genuine appreciation for a culture so different from the multitudes we have at home. We try to be the horizon where culture meets culture without biases, with openness to learn more and learn together.

With year-long sprinkled talks and workshops, various online showcases and competitions, the Society blog (Zetsubo Free Zone) and the annual lunch and event, Shokuji and Matsuri, the Society has taken small steps in the larger project of the coexistence of a space for cultural appreciation in the college. These activities are often in collaboration with the Embassy of Japan and the Japan Foundation; and online interractions with students of Soka and Keio Universities in Japan. Saku, the annual Journal is also set to be launched in the 2021- 2022 term.

The logo (waraku): The logo was designed in 2019 by Chihiro Yamasaki, an exchange student from Soka University. It is based on the kanjis “和” (read as wa) and “和楽” (read as waraku). The kanji 和 represents Japan. It means harmony and Japanese traditions, and 楽 (read as raku) means fun. Together, 和楽 or waraku means enjoying harmoniously and peacefully.
