Join us on November 2 for our webinar, “The Magic of Minka: Traditional Japanese Farmhouses”!

For centuries, the great traditional farmhouses known as “Minka” have provided shelter and embodied the values of the agrarian society of pre-modern Japan.  Their huge sturdy posts and powerful beams have withstood earthquakes and other natural disasters, demonstrating the artistry of Japanese carpenters and the strength of traditional wood joinery.  Preserved and reconstructed today, they offer silent testimony to the enduring beauty and resilience of traditional Japanese cultural values.

This program will present the work of Yoshihiro Takishita, Japan’s leading advocate for the preservation of historic Minka and an eloquent spokesman for the wisdom and artistry to be learned from Japan’s past.

The event, which EngageAsia will co-sponsor with CIE-US, will feature Japanese architect Yoshihiro Takishita and former President of Japan Society Boston Peter Grilli.


Date/time: November 2, 8:00 PM EDT (November 3, 9:00 AM JST)
