In this post I will talk about the 17th edition of the Japanese film festival Nippon Connection I attended in the last week of May 2017. This year marked my second visit to the festival after my first one in 2015.
In autumn of last year I challenged myself with the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test, just known under its abbreviation JLPT. Two months later I heard back and I received the result and I passed!
Three films from or about Japan are coming in Swiss cinemas at the beginning of the new year. I have seen two of them already and would like to briefly introduce all of them.
In the first June weekend I visited the 15th Nippon Connection in Frankfurt. It is a Japanese film festival with very diverse films and a lot of supporting program. In total, I watched three movies, of which was one an anime. Find the trailer and synopsis as well as my impressions below.
Just a quick reminder, the annual Snow Festival is currently taking place in Sapporo. Unfortunately, I could not make it, but a friend of mine is there right now. Follow her blog and have a look at the amazing snow sculptures which are exhibited in the Odori Park.
