Niponica: Introducing Modern Japan


from Niponica : “On March 3 every year it is common for families to celebrate their young daughters during the Hina-matsuri festival, by displaying small dolls in the home. In one region in Shizuoka Prefecture, homes are decorated with tsurushi-bina, which are made of cloth and suspended in an ornate display.” (Photo: Aflo)

Niponica is “a web magazine that introduces modern Japan to people all over the world.” It is also a useful resource for Japanese and Japanese Culture Studies students!

The newest issue, No. 17, focuses on miniatures in Japan. It is available on the web and in PDF format.
