Hagi Night festivities

07 05

 

The Club played host to some fascinating visitors from the city of Hagi in Yamaguchi prefecture on the evening of Friday, Feb. 7. Hagi is a former castle town on the coast, known for cherry blossoms and quaint narrow streets. Joining a large group of Members was Mayor Kenji Fujimichi, who introduced us to Hagi’s local food delicacies, such as Kenran beef, red tile fish and Mutsumi pork, along with local brews to wash them down. Guests were also given live demonstrations of some of Hagi’s traditional folk handicrafts. Tomoaki Kaneda, a ceramic artist, gave a Hagi pottery throwing demonstration, while Yoshiko Okano, a local doll maker, showed her skills at making Hagi-style traditional dolls.
