Hello, I’m Kasumi Kobayashi. Thank you for listening Japanese classical literature audiobooks.
Today, I’d like to introduce a new podcast created by Mme Miyuki Seguchi, who is a journalist and licensed guide. A couple of days ago, I had a chat with her and was impressed by her passion for exploring and sharing Japanese culture worldwide.
My dear listeners, Japanese tradition is declining and approaching its extinction parallel to its aging population. Many skilled masters of traditional arts and crafts have no heir.
But the hope is, we have an ardent person like Miyuki, who is excellent in presenting authentic - still alive - tradition in Japan ! If you are interested and eventually visit Japan to go to, for example, Japanese Puppet Theatre 人形浄瑠璃, you’d save it from disappearance.
Her podcast, Japan Experts, is reachable via iTune and other platforms.
Thank you for listening and have a good day !
