Deanna in Nagoya

Kamishibai is a Japanese style of storytelling that was popular in the first half of the 20th century. These narrators were street performers of a sort -- they read a variety of stories from a series of illustrated paper boards, entertaining the commonfolk before the emergence of television. I will blog about my experiences in Japan through a modernized version of kamishibai, telling my stories through a series of photographs and their corresponding narrations that will be similar to a novel.

Favorite thing about going abroad?

I am excited to be exploring the history and social culture of my homeland. My extended maternal family live in different parts of Aichi Prefecture, so I will be able to see various facets of the surrounding area of Nanzan the summer prior to my study abroad experience.
