Re: Events!


Ju-On is a scary movie from Japan. After Ring, this should be next on your list. It is available on dvd, but you'll probably need a region free player. I just read in either Time or Newsweek Magazine a brief article about how several Japanese horror films are being remade in the U.S.

Take a friend and see this movie.....it's really creepy!

Re: Events!


Thanks, ccwf. Why isn't Japan involved in this? Is it because Japan doesn't celebrate the more orthodox Buddhist holidays of the Chinese, Taiwanese, Koreans, and Vietnamese? (Such as the Chinese New Year and this).

I believe the Japanese version of the harvest moon festival is 酉の市, but that doesn't happen until November.

Hmm. I think the Japanese are Buddhist only in name. Their forms of Buddhism are very, very radical compared to the more conservative Chinese types (which itself is nothing compared to the purest forms, Thai, Indian, and Tibetian) and I think that most Japanese holidays (most) are based on Shintoism.

Well, I'll stop my religious rant. ;)

Re: Events!


ccwf, great info on the event at Arcadia Park. I attended the last one there and it is an extremely well-run event . . . lots to hear and see . . . not to mention all the food! It takes on a whole new meaning to me now that I have the background info. Thanks.

Re: Events!


Yeah. The food is always good, once I went to a Japanese Methodist Church, everyone was very nice. Some of the ladies I chatted with said that a lot of the religious places of Aisan worship make the food from scratch, sort of like Protestant fellowship just for the festivals.
