by Japanese Experience in Penang
In Penang, we have a close-knit Japanese community of about 3,500 people. Despite not being particularly huge in terms of numbers, the contributions towards Penang’s cultural diversity are immense and remarkable. An example is the Pink Hibiscus Club, formed in 2005, which has been instrumental in promoting Japanese culture to Penang. Japanese calligraphy, yoga, and kimono sessions, to name a few, are very popular with the locals. Thanks for continuously enriching our cultural life and cultural scene here for the many past decades.
With this content series, we spotlight, celebrate, and amplify Penang's Japanese experience and the community whose cultural contributions reverberate around the globe. Bookmark this page and remember to check back as we continue adding new content.
