Nihongo Night Feb 2020 – The Era of Showa Part 1

Our next Nihongo Night is scheduled on February 22, 2020 from 5 pm to 7 pm ET.

The topic is “The Era of Showa – Part 1”. Mr. Mas Hongoh of JSGH will talk about Japan in the Meiji, Taisho eras to the beginning of the Showa era.

“As a child growing in Japan, I used to hear “Meiji Era is long gone…” That was after the Pacific War ended. Now Japan is living in the Reiwa era, following the Heisei era, and the Showa era seems long gone. We don’t know where the Reiwa era will lead Japan. Recently the Japanese economy is attracting much attention in Europe, they will be facing the same problem Japan has now, an aging society and reduced productivity. I’m not a historian, but interested in learning from history. Certainly, the Showa era was a very dramatic period, both for Japan and for the world around. So, I’d like to think with you what we may learn by connecting the dots of events in the history of Japan, from Meiji, Taisho, and Showa.”

Note: This presentation will be in Japanese
