G20 Saudi Arabia

【Bunraku – Osaka’s Own Traditional Performing Art/大阪発祥の伝統芸能「文楽」】
#Bunraku, Japan’s traditional puppet theater, was first played in #Osaka. Three puppeteers skillfully manipulate puppets, some of which weigh over 10kg, in harmony with the chanter’s narration and shamisen music performance. A story full of human feeling in bunraku plays, which have also been adapted for kabuki, deeply impress audience timelessly.

日本を代表する伝統芸能「#文楽」は、#大阪 から発祥しました。太夫の語りと三味線の演奏に合わせて、3人の人形遣いが、時には10キロを超える人形を操ります。現代にも通じる心情が描かれている「文楽」の演目は、歌舞伎でも取り入れられています。

#HEISEIandJapan vol.1

The name of Japan’s new era will be #REIWA #令和!
https://nettv.gov-online.go.jp/eng/prg/prg6240.html

Japan has its own calendar linked to the reign of each Emperor. Today, a month ahead of the #abdication of the #Emperor of Japan on April 30, Japan - The Government of Japan announced REIWA as the name for the new era beginning on May 1.

The name “REIWA” comes from a passage of #Manyoshu, the oldest collection of Japanese poetry. As PM Abe explained, this name means that culture is born and nurtured when people harmonize their hearts. (Official English transcript of PM Abe’s explanation will come up on PM Office’s website shortly.)

The name of the current era “#HEISEI” “平成” (1989-present) has a variety of interpretations and English translations, but it is said to mean that peace will be achieved.

In the 30 years of HEISEI, Japan has sought a more active role as a responsible member of the international community in a wide range of fields including development, peacebuilding, culture and other global issues.

To mark this historic moment, we will begin a series of HEISEI and Japan posts to highlight topics related to the HEISEI era and Japan, which will help us contemplate how Japan’s diplomacy should be shaped in the coming era.
