Calendar of Events

Welcome to the Japan Events in Boston calendar.

This calendar is a resource for Japan fans, featuring Japan-related events all across the Greater Boston and New England area. We work actively to feature all Japan-related events that could help you enjoy Japan in Boston. We hope you will enjoy many of these events and share with us events that we may have overlooked. We have additional calendars focused on just our JSB-organized events. For information about ongoing art and culture exhibits at many great local museums, check out our Open Exhibits page. 

For events not organized by JSB directly, please check with the organization producing it to confirm all times, dates and event details. The Japan Society of Boston is not responsible for any changes or inaccuracies in information about events we feature but do not produce ourselves.

    Museum of Fine Arts, Harry and Mildred Remis Auditorium (Auditorium 161), Avenue of the Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115

    Explore the exhibition “Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics: A Collaboration with Nobuo Tsuji and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston” with curator Anne Nishimura Morse. The term “lineage of eccentrics,”  was coined by noted art historian Professor Nobuo Tsuji to describe outlier Japanese artists whose “lineage” is not a conventional master-disciple relationship, but one marked by a certain expressionist bent along with bizarre image-making. Discover through the exhibition, how contemporary artist Takashi Murakami sees his place in that lineage.

    Anne Nishimura Morse, William and Helen Pounds Senior Curator of Japanese Art

    Internationally acclaimed pianist/composer Yoko Miwa is quickly becoming known as one of the most powerful and compelling performers on the scene today. Her trio - with its remarkable telepathy and infectious energy - has brought audiences to their feet worldwide.

    This concert celebrates the success of Miwa's 2017 new recording Pathways – her seventh as a leader – which spent 4 weeks on the Jazz Week top 10 radio charts and is earning wide critical acclaim.

    For the past decade the Kobe, Japan native has honed one of the most musical and lyrical trio sounds around. Miwa’s band, which has been heralded for their almost telepathic interplay, performs regularly at major jazz clubs worldwide including New York City’s Blue Note Jazz Club and Jazz at Lincoln Center where Miwa was chosen to play on “Marian McPartland & Friends” as part of the Coca Cola Generations in Jazz Festival.  She has performed and/or recorded with a wide range of jazz greats including Sheila Jordan, Slide Hampton, Arturo Sandoval, George Garzone, Jon Faddis, Jerry Bergonzi, Esperanza Spalding, Terri Lyne Carrington, Kevin Mahogany, John Lockwood and Johnathan Blake among others.  A Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll winner, Miwa is on faculty at Berklee College of Music.

    Is Japan's Energy Policy Aligned with a 2C Future?

    Presented in partnership with Boston Common Asset Management, the Growald Family Fund, and InfluenceMap

    Friday, November 3, 2017 from 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

    Business Insight:
    Japan's Energy Choices towards 2020

    Please register by October 25th as space is limited. 

    The Japan Society of Boston invites you to join us for an interactive breakfast roundtable highlighting the positive role investors can play in engaging Japanese companies to support a consistent energy policy aligned with a 2 degrees future.

    We will discuss the profound and fast changing implications of Japan’s focus on coal power over renewables, both domestically and overseas and the real risk this represents to investors and companies alike.   Japan's energy policies appear to favor the development of large coal power generation, however these policies often lack the involvement of other key stakeholders such as civil society groups, the financial sector, and mainstream Japanese business sectors.  Japanese corporates therefore are missing out on a multi-trillion dollar global industry favoring renewable energy and potential synergies between renewables and EVs in many markets. There are also heightened concerns among banks over growing ESG and NGO pressure on their coal lending.

    We will explore specific strategies for how asset managers and asset owners can actively engage Japanese companies on their plans to de-risk and shift away from these coal projects and seek opportunities to align with a low carbon future.

    A light breakfast will be provided.  There will be a Q&A session and time for networking.

    A 3 page briefing for investors extracted from the soon to be released report can be downloaded from this landing page.

    Speakers

    • Lauren Compere, Managing Director of Boston Common Asset Management;
    • Joanna Messing, Executive Director of Growald Family Fund
    • Dylan Tanner, Executive Director of InfluenceMap, will share findings from the Japan coal-renewables analysis and suggest engagement strategies for concerned investor and stakeholders.

    This program of early and mid-career works includes Terayama’s first film, The Cage, which makes clear the deep hold of Surrealism upon the young filmmaker. The opening film, Butterfly Dress Pledge, offers a striking introduction into the theatrical trance world inhabited by so many of Terayama’s films, while also showcasing his interests in breaking through the screen itself.

    Pastoral Hide and Seek (Denen ni shisu)

    Terayama’s autobiographically inspired feature is an avant-garde cine-memoire and the fullest expression of the mythopoesis of childhood, family and history that recurs throughout his films and writings. Set in the rural North where Terayama spent his formative years, the visually dazzling Pastoral Hide and Seek glides seamlessly between past and present, oneiric theater and cinematic kaleidoscope in a cascade of collaging and overripe symbols that are simultaneously offered as critical and emotional reflections upon Terayama’s past and the traumatic history of post-WWII Japan.

    Directed by Shuji Terayama. With Kaoru Yachigusa, Keiko Niitaka, Masumi Harukawa

    Ramen Ride 2017

    Copley Square, 560 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02116

    Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 1:30 PM – 5:00 PM

    Are you ready to ride your bicycle to the best ramen shops in Boston? Welcome to Boston Cyclists Union’s Ramen Ride 2017! Just because it’s a little chillier doesn’t mean we stop riding and eating amazing local food! What better way to stay warm than with ramen?

    Riders will visit three of the most awesome ramen shops in town. Don’t worry, you won’t be expected to eat 3 full-sized bowls. They’ll serve you their most-favorited ramen in a smaller portion so you can have space in your belly to savour all 3!

    Participating locally-owned ramen purveyors:

    • Ganko Ittetsu (Coolidge Corner, Brookline)
    • Pagu (Central Square, Cambridge)
    • Shabu & Mein (Kendall square, Cambridge)

    Go to Copley Square to get your “ramen tickets” from the Boston Cyclists Union. Then self-divide (meaning, you still get to ride with your buddies) into groups of 10-15 people to keep the lines short. You can ride to all the ramen shops on your own or follow a volunteer ride leader.

    Riding to all 3 ramen shops is 8-10 miles depending on which route you take. The routes will include raised cycle tracks and (protected) bike lanes as much as Boston-ly possible.

    After the ride, gather at Flat Top Johnny’s (Cambridge) to vote on the best ramen in town. And this is where you get your commemorative Boston Ramen Ride 2017 chopsticks!

    Boston Cyclists Union love bikes, good food, friends & Boston. This ride is all about supporting a local economy that in turn supports better transportation options. Slurp your ramen, ride your bike, help make the Boston area better for biking and for local businesses!

    All of the proceeds will be donated to Boston Cyclists Union, who are working tirelessly to make sure Boston has the bicycling infrastructure to ride our bikes year round!

    Fruits of Passion (Les fruits de la passion)

    A heady admixture of sexual and anti-imperialist fantasy, Fruits of Passion is a loose adaptation of Pauline Réage’s sequel to her erotic classic The Story of O and stars Klaus Kinski as a lecherous and wealthy wastrel. Although operating in a more lush and theatrical vein than Nagisa Oshima or Koji Wakamatsu, Terayama shares his contemporaries’ fascination with the possibilities and limits of the intermingling of sexual and political revolution.

    Directed by Shuji Terayama. With Klaus Kinski, Isabelle Illiers, Arielle Dombasle
    France/Japan 1981, 35mm, color, 90 min. French, Japanese, English & Cantonese with English subtitles

    These two longer form works reveal different but related sides of Terayama’s cinema: the performance-based corporeal work showcased in A Tale of Smallpox and the narrative reimagination of childhood and memory in Grass Labyrinth. 

    A Tale of Smallpox (Hosotan)
    Directed by Shuji Terayama. With Keiko Niitaka, Yoko Ran, Takeshi Wakamatsu

    Japan 1975, 16mm, color, 34 min

    Grass Labyrinth (Kusa-meikyu)
    Macabre and sexualized, Grass Labyrinth plunges into the subconscious of Akira, a teenager haunted by the desire to remember the lyrics of a song his absent mother once sung. Akira’s mother is framed yet inaccessible—withdrawing into water, paper screens, a tune that has lost its lyrics, and the mists and shadows of memory. The mother spins and works a loom, and binds her son with rope. Later, Akira is otherwise entangled with a nymphomaniac and a prostitute. Abandoned by his own mother, Terayama imbues the film with the phantasmagoria of his childhood, including the ghost tales of Aomori—recalled by a chorus in whiteface—and the experience of growing up in a house adjoining a cinema. His expressionistic projections are further amplified by composer J. A. Seazer’s portentous birdsong, wind chimes and operatic crescendos. Once writing that all dead people become words, Terayama wrestles with language and loss through this labyrinthine search for lyrics and the lost mother they represent.

    Directed by Shuji Terayama. With Takeshi Wakamatsu, Hiroshi Mikami, Juzo Itami

    Farewell to the Ark (Saraba hakobune)
    Inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude, Terayama’s final and most elaborate feature film takes place on a remote Okinawan island ruled by a kind of mythical time that gives shifting shape to memory, fantasy and even death. Released shortly after his premature demise at the age of forty-seven and premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, Farewell to the Ark seems to point towards a new direction in Terayama’s cinema, closer to the international art film with its casting of major stars and slightly more legible narrative structure, here the intergenerational struggles of a dynastic family. Nevertheless, the film brims over with classic Terayama tropes of surreal violence, frustrated sexuality and oneiric, ghostly imagery.

    The Boxer (Bokusa)
    Terayama’s most traditional film, The Boxer reveals his passion for pugilism as a pure form of theater, improvisatory and unabashedly violent. The Boxer tells the story of a scrappy adolescent who spends his last monies to travel to the city and enroll in boxing school. Forging a difficult bond with his eccentric and at first reluctant coach, the young boxer suffers the tumults and pains of life in the ring before being thrust onto the largest stage of them all. Terayama brings a documentary verve to the film, casting celebrated Japanese boxers in bold cameos. 

    Directed by Shuji Terayama. With Bunta Sugawara, Kentaro Shimizu, Masumi Harukawa

    Throw Away Your Books, Rally in the Streets
    (Sho o suteyo machi e deyou)

    Combining raw discomfort and unexpected beauty, Terayama’s first feature follows socioeconomically marginalized Eimei, who rages against conservative, “efficient,” and unjust systems that bar him from following his dreams. The subsequent rallies read as documents of an anarchist moment in Japanese history—seen through poetically placed colored gels and jaunty camera angles with graffitied literary references littering the streets. Meanwhile, if Eimei’s prospects seem bleak, those for women are worse. Terayama closes in on the catastrophic gulf between male projections of female experience and women’s actual experience through sexualized and violent images—which may or may not operate by the same logic they critique. 

    Opening with darkness and a whirring that could be either a camera or a projector, the film inserts us between its production and its consumption. Eimei confronts us in this darkness: “What the hell are you doing?” Later, he asks for the studio lights to be switched on. Images of the cast without costume scroll instead of credits. Challenging audience passivity through such reflexivity, Terayama relates the film to its book and theatrical versions, and his concurrent experiments in expanded cinema. Throw Away Your Books ends with Eimei bidding farewell to film—“Sayonara eiga!”—but Terayama’s images stay with us.

    MANJIRO IN AMERICA: HOW FAIRHAVEN, MA SHAPED US/JAPAN HISTORY

    With Speaker Gerald P. Rooney, President & CEO of the WHITFIELD-MANJIRO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY

    Meridian Room, 50 Milk St. 5F,
    Boston, MA 02109

    Tuesday, November 14, 2017 from 12 - 1PM

    You may know the John Manjiro story from the 1840s, when a young Japanese castaway was found and rescued by American whaling ship captain William Whitfield. Young Manjiro was welcomed as a son by Whitfield and raised for a few years in Fairhaven MA. This remarkable man - who returned to Japan as a fluent English speaker - became critical to the US/Japan relationship when Commodore Perry arrived in Yokohama harbor in 1853. This powerful historical story of a personal friendship impacting global peace has inspired thousands of people to visit Fairhaven. For years, Gerry Rooney has been dedicated to preserving these historic sites. Mr. Rooney will engage us in conversation about the Manjiro/Whitfield story, about the historic sites today, and about how friendship still forms the foundation of peace in our world.

    Introduction by Julian Ross & Chizuru Usui 

    Young Person’s Guide to Cinema
    (Seishonen no tameno eiganyumon)

    Directed by Shuji Terayama. With Henrikku Morisaki, Masahiro Saito, Sueshi Sasada

    Japan 1974, 16mm, color, 3 min

    The Reading Machine (Shokenki)
    In this Borgesian satire on knowledge and technology, bibliophilic desire leads to the construction of a pedal-powered reading machine. Resembling a combination of gymnastic contraption, printing press and early cinematic apparatus, the machine’s purpose remains ambiguous. And like this machine, Terayama’s film connects his work in poetry, motion picture and graphic design by weaving together printed and projected, still and moving images. Alphabetic characters are shuffled across a board game, and costumed characters shuffle through a cityscape to the tune of J. A. Seazer’s imaginative soundtrack. The camera lingers on an image of a man crawling through a screen—a premonitory illustration of Terayama’s interest in rupturing façades, illusion and identity. The final book we see is blank, and the film ends in a funeral dance. Such ambivalence articulates Terayama’s interrogation of written and cinematic language, evident elsewhere in inky strikethroughs (Video Letter, 1983) and Brechtian transgressions (Laura, 1974).

    Directed by Shuji Terayama. With Toshihiko Hino, Keiko Niitaka, Takeshi Wakamatsu
    Japan 1977, 16mm, color, 22 min. Japanese with English subtitles

    Les chants de Maldoror (Marudororu no uta)
    A “reading film” of delirious image and text, Les chants de Maldoror takes its title and inspiration from Comte de Lautréamont’s 1869 proto-Surrealist poetic novel which, for instance, describes beauty as the chance encounter of a sewing machine and an umbrella on an operating table. In the novel’s six cantos, a young misanthrope indulges in depraved and destructive acts. Unexpected encounters abound, with turtles and birds joining Terayama’s regular cast of snails and dogs to wander over books and bare torsos. Feverish video processing posterizes, inverts and overlays images that are further colored by sound—pushing the limits of his literary adaptation. Terayama wrote that the only tombstone he wanted was his words, but, as Les chants de Maldoror demonstrates, words need not be confined to carved monuments or bound hardcopies.

    Japan 1977, 16mm, color, 27 min. Japanese with English subtitles

    An Attempt to Describe the Measure of Man
    (Issunboshi o kijutsusuru kokoromi)

    Using bluescreen video techniques, Terayama playfully—and with a silent film theatricality—posits a series of postmodern vignettes featuring realities-within-realities as his protagonist attempts some kind of relationship with a nude woman on the screen-within-the-screen. In his struggles to “free” her, he exposes the absurd flimsiness, deceptiveness and mutability of both the cinema experience and our human dimension.

    Presentation & Performance by Henrikku Morisaki

    Featuring some of Terayama’s most dazzling and truly experimental films, this program includes his haunting meditation on shadow and/as cinema, Shadow Film, as well as his celebrated The Eraser, which gives rough texture and violence to the intertwined acts of memory and forgetting. Henrikku Morisaki will introduce the program and enact Terayama’s important film performances, Laura and The Trial, the latter a radically interactive film that invites the audience to join in a symbolic desecration and reinvention of the movie screen.

    Video Letter

    Pensive yet playful, Video Letter is a meditation on identity, death, and the limits of language. Made in collaboration with friend and poet Tanikawa Shuntaro (who also experimented with video and sound technology), it draws inspiration from renga poetry, a traditional form in which two poets correspond in alternating verses. Terayama and Tanikawa film themselves alone, sifting through possessions, unpacking nesting boxes, and leafing through poetry and photographs (as in so many of his films, Terayama is haunted by images of his mother). They share a phone call, and use intertitles and voiceovers as missives. Indeed, words are repeated and relished, obliterated with a marker pen, and swallowed in a wink and half-smile for the camera. The addressee of Tanikawa’s final intertitle is left blank, and Video Letter closes with the scrolling electrocardiogram that Tanikawa took from Terayama’s bedside. The cardiogram traces Terayama’s final moments in a cursive verse that underlines a life’s work.
