Memorial Ceremony and First Anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake
A ceremony was held at the Official Residence of the Consul General on March 15 to commemorate the first anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake. About 350 guests gathered at the Official Residence and the ceremony began with the national anthems of both Australia and Japan, which were then followed by a minute’s silence. Speeches were made by Consul-General Tatsuo Ishikawa; The Honourable Kim Hames, MLA, Deputy Premier, Minister for Health, Tourism, and representing the Premier of Western Australia; and finally by the Honourable Michelle Roberts, MLA, Shadow Minister for Police, Road Safety, Crime Prevention, Tourism, and representing the Leader of the Opposition.
Students from the Japanese School in Perth performed a dance called the NanchuSoran - an adaptation of the SoranBushi which depicts the actions of fisherman dragging nets, pulling ropes, and carrying heavy loads on their shoulders – with the performance symbolizing hope and the energy for the reconstruction and the future of Japan. Cello quartet, I Cellisti, then performed and included songs from the Tohoku Region.

JET Community Networking BBQ
The annual Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Community Networking BBQ was held in Kings Park on March 18. About 50 participants enjoyed a sausage sizzle and okonomiyaki – a fried savoury pancake popular in Japan - as well as cricket and suikawari – a game played in Japan in summer in which people try to split open a watermelon with a stick while blindfolded, assisted by the calls of those standing nearby. The BBQ was a good opportunity for the Western Australia-Japan community to socialise and to further raise awareness of the JET Programme.

JETAA WA - JAPSSOC Charity Quiz Night

Japanese Anime Film Festival
The Consulate-General of Japan in Perth, in collaboration with the State Library of Western Australia, held a three-night anime film festival in the evenings of March 26, 27 and 28. “Summer Wars” was shown on the first night, followed by “Pom Poko” on the second night and “My NeighborTotoro” on the third and final night. A number of young ladies dressed up in costumes (cos play) each night, making the lobby outside the State Library Theatre a fun and interesting entrance for guests. Feedback from surveys filled out after the films indicated people enjoyed the festival, and will be used as a reference for the annual Japanese Film Festival to be held later this year.
