The Japanese culture is one that may interest many, and J-Pop club is the perfect club to learn about the many aspects of their culture, ranging from animation to traditions.

Meeting in room E7 every Thursday, J-Pop club features a variety of members, all interested in the culture of Japan. In addition to exploring the general traditions of Japanese culture, the club also talks about the sub-cultures, like what might be popular among students in schools.

Often times, club meetings involve presentations which teach members of the club about Japanese culture. Vice President Anna Marcos is particularly interested in the different aspects of artistic culture within Japan.

“I think the art encompasses the uniqueness, and there’s a lot of different influences and styles that are represented, from the traditional ones to the modern ones used in popular culture,” she said.

Apart from discussing and discovering all sorts of things in Japan, club members also come to enjoy the company of each other. Eating their meals together and sharing a similar interest in Japanese culture provides a tightly knit community.

Club Vice-President Jaylena Lara said, “I love being in the club because it gives a safe environment to hang out with my friends and make new ones, while also learning about another culture together.”

Apart from meeting in the club at lunch, J-Pop club also gets together outside of school to practice for the Heritage Fair. In the Heritage Fair, the club performs a dance together.

“This is kind of within school, but we do hang out at each other’s places to practice for Heritage Fair. We practice and hang out and bond. I think it’s the number one way to get closer with my fellow club members,” Marcos said.

Whether you are a student who wants to learn about Japanese culture, make new friends, or just learn about another part of the world, J-Pop club provides a perfect environment to do so.

“Don’t be afraid of embracing another culture into your life. I know Japanese culture gets a bad reputation, but it really is interesting,” said Club President Nina Chung.
