Winter Family Festival 2014

We’re featuring many of the family favourites, such as the gingerbread cookie

arranging, and even caricatures. We’ll also have a craft market to give everyone a

market). Admission fees will remain the same - $5 for adults, $3 for kids ages 4-15,

Meet the Stars of Uzumasa Limelight at our Toronto Premiere
We are very excited to announce stars Seizo Fukumoto, Chihiro Yamamoto and director Ken Ochiai will be visiting the JCCC this month for
a special screening of Uzumasa Limelight, a Q&A session and a post-screening reception with sake and sushi.
A moving, nostalgic portrait of the men behind the golden age of chanbara (sword-fighting dramas and films), Uzumasa Limelight—
whose title refers to a Charlie Chaplin film about the twilight days of a stage actor — goes behind the scenes of Japan’s most distinctive film
genre. Its protagonist is a professional extra named Kamiyama, who has devoted 50 years of his life as a kirareyaku in sword-fighting movies
produced at Kyoto’s Uzumasa Studios. His specialty? He lives to die. Or more exactly “to be cut” and die a beautiful, spectacular death on the
silver screen. Kamiyama, played by real-life kirareyaku Seizo Fukumoto, has become a master of the art, with his own signature style of falling
down dead. Now an elderly man, he lives in very modest circumstances, but has earned immense respect from his more prominent peers,
some of them movie stars. When the studio decides to discontinue its chanbara productions, Kamiyama finds himself at a loss: what will he
do for the rest of his life? How can he use his specialized skills? Hope arrives in the form of a young girl named Satsuki (Chihiro Yamamoto),
who soon becomes Kamiyama’s disciple. Will the art of dying by the sword live on?
Uzumasa Limelight won the Cheval Noir prize and the award for the best leading actor at the Fantasia International Film Festival in
Montreal as well as the audience award at the New York Asian Film Festival.
Mr. Fukumoto has been killed literally thousands of times on screen. He debuted as a ninja in the 1966 Tokusatsu classic The Magic
Serpent and in such genre gems as The Street Fighter (1974) and Legend of Eight Samurai (1983). He was also famously the silent samurai
“Bob” in Tom Cruise’s The Last Samurai.
Date: Wednesday November 26, 2014
Time: 7:00pm
Tickets $10 (JCCC Members) $12 (Non-members). Tickets can be purchased at
416-441-2345 ext. 222 or at JCCC reception.
Notice:
We regret to inform you that, in consideration of his continuing good health, Mr
Seizo Fukumoto has had to alter his schedule and will not be able to join us for the
screening on Wednesday November 26, 2014. Other guests Chihiro Yamamoto and
director Ken Ochiai will be attending as planned. We look forward to seeing you
there.
A Co-Presentation by Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival and Toronto Japanese Film
Festival at the JCCC
"A sweet and funny film, it's a delight to spend time in the company
of Fuku-chan and the quirky outsiders he collects around him.” – Christopher O’Keeffe, TWITCHFILM
“Makes the most of the comedy talents of its leads with its mixture
of slapstick humour and pathos working delightfully” – Mark Adams, SCREEN DAILY
Tatsuo “Fuku-chan” Fukuda (Miyuki Oshima) is a 32-year old
painter living in a charmingly decrepit apartment complex called
Fukufuku Flats. Since moving to Tokyo from rural Tochigi Prefecture,
Fuku-chan has held down a steady job with a small construction
firm where he spends his days channeling a long-held dream of
becoming an artist into painting buildings. His lonely evenings are
spent mediating disputes between the oddball denizens of Fukufuku
Flats including a panty thief, a slack-jawed reptile enthusiast and an
aspiring enka singer.
Fuku-chan is popular, kind, generous and well-liked by
everyone around him. Romantically however, his shyness around
women has rendered him a disaster. One day, an unfamiliar
woman turns up at Fukufuku Flats. She is Chiho Sugiura (Asami
Mizukawa), his first love from junior high school 20 years earlier,
and the person responsible for the traumatizing incident that led to
his fear of women….
This new film from Yosuke Fujita delivers all the idiosyncratic
4
humour we expect from a Fujita film but with an added layer of
pathos and emotional complexity. The film’s real revelation is
Miyuki Oshima, a popular television comedienne, who plays a
male character in the lead role. Her miraculous performance as
Fuku-chan earned her the Cheval Noir Best Actress Award at the
2014 Fantasia International Film Festival; it is deadpan hilarious
but with a heart-rending emotional underpinnings. Oshima is ably
supported by Fujita favourite Yoshiyoshi Arakawa, Miyuki Oshima
and Asami Mizukawa.
Date: Wednesday November 12, 2014
Time: 7:00pm
Tickets $10 (JCCC Members) $12 (Non-members)
Tickets can be purchased at 416-441-2345 ext. 222 or at JCCC
reception, as well as through ticketweb at www.ticketweb.ca.
Issei Day
On Sunday October 5, 2014, the JCCC hosted its annual Issei Day
- A Tribute to the Seniors of our Community. This is an opportunity
to honour all those who are 70 and over. We filled Kobayashi Hall
with almost 400 people in attendance. It is also interesting to note
that we almost had 100 attendees who were 90 and over and we
had 4 attendees who were at least 100 years old or will be this
year!!! We thank all of the performers for coming out to entertain
our guests. We also thank Stan Kayama and Kunio Suyama for
the emceeing the afternoon.
At this time we would like to make specific acknowledgement
to some of the people and groups who have helped make our Issei
Day so successful in the present and the past.
We extend our appreciation to Mr. Ishii for the bentos – as well
as the small group of volunteers who began filling all the bento
boxes at 7:00 in the morning!
Thanks also go out to the crew of volunteers who helped with
making the fantastic manju!
A special mention goes to the NJCA and Anzu Hara, who
managed the registration tables and helped throughout the event.
Much appreciation is also extended to the Consul General of
Japan for the generous donation every year of the sake for those
90 and over.
Overall, we extend our deep-felt appreciation to the Japanese
Garden Club, Keiko Ono, Dave Ohashi, the hard-working
committee, staff and all the other volunteers for a wonderful event.
Last, but far from least, we thank all our other donors, both large
and small for their contributions towards the success of the event.

Zero Hour: Tokyo Rose’s Last Tape
Theatre: Nikkei Story from the War by Miwa Yanagi
Stranded in Japan during WWII, a young JapaneseAmerican woman was forced to serve as ‘Tokyo
Rose’, a radio broadcaster, for a propaganda
program controlled by the Japanese Imperial Army,
and was subsequently tried for treason. Seventy
years later, this historic incident is brought to life
through a visually stunning whodunit - conceived,
written and directed by internationally renowned
visual artist Miwa Yanagi. Brimming with iconic
imagery from her rich body of photographic work,
“Zero Hour” tells the multi-layered story of a woman
caught between two nations during the war. This
presentation marks Yanagi’s North American debut
as a theatre artist.

November is for
Remembering
Sedai Corner
As fall turns to winter cold,
here at Sedai the month of
November is for pause and
reflection, before the busy holiday season. Le us take a moment to
extend our appreciation to those who came before us as we mark
Remembrance Day; may the brave sacrifices of our ancestors be
the ideals that we all strive towards in providing a future free from
prejudice.
Sedai has been very busy, assisting with the preparation
of video footage and supporting documentation for the newly
mounted spotlight exhibit in the Moriyama Nikkei Heritage Centre
titled “Celebrating the Friendship between Canada’s Jewish and
Japanese Communities”. We encourage all JCCC members, their
family, friends, and visitors to the Centre to visit the space and
read our many community testimonials. Our sincere thanks goes in
particular to the many community members who stepped forward
to provide their piece of the history, whether in Sedai interview,
or through written submissions. Especially in a time when it is
easy to find mass conflict – political, social, or religious – it seems
especially important to highlight those friendships across lines of
difference.
Sedai would also like to extend its deepest thanks to The
Honourable John A. Fraser, and Arthur S. Hara for their interviews
with Sedai Project founder Connie Sugiyama, and former Sedai
Project Coordinator Lisa Uyeda. Interviews with both gentlemen
were conducted through a special opportunity to speak with them
in British Columbia, with regards to their assistance in the fight for
Redress. The Honourable John A. Fraser – an Officer of the Order
of Canada – was a member of Parliament for Vancouver South, as
well as a former Speaker of the House of Commons (1972-1993).
Arthur S. Hara, in working on promoting Canada’s relations with
the Pacific Rim as a prominent Japanese-Canadian businessman,
is also an Officer of the Order of Canada, and received the Order
of the Rising Sun. Their invaluable memories and perspective will
be added to the mosaic that is Japanese-Canadian history, as
preserved through Sedai and the JCCC Archive. Sedai would also
like to extend its thanks to the Oral History and Language Lab at
UBC’s Museum of Anthropology for their assistance in facilitating
the recording process. The lab endeavors to provide support to the
greater community in recording and preserving oral histories.
If you have questions, or would like information regarding
recording your family legacy, please contact Elizabeth Fujita, at
[email protected] or 416-441-2345 ext. 303.

Engaging the Community with Heritage!
Heritage Corner
The Heritage Committee has been very busy, working on recent
donations, projects, and events that support the Centre.
We are very excited about the range of donations that the
Comittee has received for our archives. We recently received 49
paintings by Canadian artist Ronald York-Wilsonl some of whose
paintings hang in art galleries and museums across Canada and
around the World. Ronald York-Wilson studied commercial art
at Central Technical School in Toronto. His first notable exhibit
was with the Canadian Group of Painters at the 1939 New York
World Fair. He later became known for his commissioned murals,
which include murals at McGill University’s library, the Imperial
Oil Building in Toronto, and Toronto’s O’Keefe Centre, which is
still retained today at the renamed Sony Centre. The Japanese
Canadian Cultural Centre is extremely pleased to be the recipient
of his paintings and the Heritage Art Gallery looks forward to
hosting an exhibit of his works next year.
Another significant and much appreciated donation is a series
of artefacts, including original cookware that had traveled with an
issei family from Japan, through their internment, and kept until it
was donated. Our many thanks to the Takahashi family, as these
artefacts will be used to help with our educational programming for
students, as well as in our exhibits.
Our Tuesday and Wednesday groups of volunteers continue
to give meaning and context to the thousands of photos at the
Centre. We welcome faces new and old in working with our current
groups of volunteers in helping us identify people and places, so
that invaluable background information will not be lost to time.
We have many pictures that were taken in the various internment
camps, road camps, and sugar beet farms, and your help in
providing us with information or stories about these pictures is
always welcomed and greatly appreciated!
Lastly, in a nod to the JCCC’s Sakura Gala, which is honouring
Chiune Sugihara and the Jewish - Japanese Canadian relationship
that began during the move from western Canada to the eastern
provinces, an exhibit of Chiune Sugihara’s Visas for Life exhibit will
be hosted in the Art Gallery for the month of November. As well,
leading up to the Sakura Gala you may see a Tour for Humanity Bus
parked in our parking lot for a few days. This mobile educational
touring bus presents educational programming for students
focusing on inspiring and empowering young people to take
action against hatred and intolerance. The Heritage Committee
is pleased to be collaborating with the Tour for Humanity program
and integrating an educational program focused on the Japanese
Canadian experience, along with the work of Chiune Sugihara.
The JCCC and the Tour for Humanity will be presenting
an evening of programming, open to all JCCC members on
Wednesday November 19, 2014 at 6:00pm, and registration is
limited! For further information on this evening of collaborative
programming – including registration info, please see the flyer
inserted with this newsletter.
For any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact
Elizabeth Fujita at [email protected], or 416-441-2345 ext. 303.
Ontario Aikido Federation Seminar @ JCCC
by Camber Muir, JCCC Aikikai
On Friday September 26 to Sunday September 28, 2014 Aikido Hokuryukai,
Aikido Tendokai, and the JCCC Aikikai co-hosted the annual Ontario Aikido
Federation seminar in Kobayashi Hall. More than 200 aikidoka from
across Canada and neighbouring states to the south attended the three
day event. Instruction was led by Hayato Osawa Shihan (7th Dan) from
World Aikido Headquarters in Tokyo. Other 7th Dan in attendance were:
Osamu Obata Shihan (JCCC Aikikai), Ishu Ishiyama Shihan (Vancouver
West Aikikai), and Robert Zimmermann (Toronto Aikikai). Dan grading was
held during the seminar with four JCCC Aikikai members being promoted.
We congratulate Marina Yukhanova (Shodan), Roger Whyte (Nidan), and
Masoud Arbani and Camber Muir (Yondan). Congratulations also go to
Adrian Iliescu who was promoted to Yondan earlier this year at summer
camp. There is no competition in our regular Aikido program so seminars
provide an opportunity to meet and practice with other aikidoka and share
the art of harmonizing ki.

The Making of an Archive
Did you or your family immigrate to Canada sometime in 1967 or after? Did you, your mom and
dad, or any of your relatives like to take photographs? The artist Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen needs
your help.
The Making of an Archive is an online archive, recording the everyday life by immigrant and
amateur photographers in order to investigate the ideological formation of multiculturalism in
Canada and the limits of its representation.
The artist became increasingly interested in the everyday routines and daily realities of being an
immigrant, particularly in its mundane imagery. Jacqueline draws inspiration from the photo
albums of her father, an amateur photographer who took countless images of his daily life.
Currently, his photo collection sits in a basement, hidden away like the other collections of
immigrants who documented their daily life when they came to this country, and those images
that will soon disappear, becoming forgotten or lost.
The artist aims to collect these images (photographs in 35mm and 120mm prints, Polaroids or
slides) by inviting you to share your family photo albums, digitize its content, and record your
history for the making of an online archive. You can find more information at
http://www.themakingofanarchive.com.
Come with your photo albums to digitize your photographs and record your history.
