World Wide Wednesdays: "Japan, A Study in Contradictions," with Robin Hattori
Free, all ages, 7 p.m., firstname.lastname@example.org
Attendance: 25 people
Our series of global adventures (via folks who've been there, done that) continues with Robin Hattori, who's lived in the neon jungle of Tokyo and the rice paddies of rural Kyushu. She will speak about Japan based on her five years there in the '90s. Think high-tech toilets next to Barbie Doll washing machines. Picture old-world temples alongside nuclear-bomb-building cults. Learn the real reason why Japanese drive on the left side of the road! Robin will share these stories and more as well as bring some visual aids from the visually stunning Japanese archipelago.
