The Bunkasai cultural exchange club, set up by the Aid for Japan charity, has told ANN that it will begin to hold screenings, including anime, at its weekly meetings each Wednsday evening. The first screening will be My Neighbor Totoro on Wednesday May 23.
The Bunkasai club meets on the downstairs floor of the Zia Teresa Italin restaurant on Hans Road (map), next to the Harrods store and close to Knightsbridge Underground station.
Meetings run from 7.30 p.m. until 11 p.m. Entry is £5 for men, £3 for women, and £1 for students. Bunkasai is a social club for anyone interested in Japan, including informal lessons about Japanese language and culture.
Bunasai was set up by Aid for Japan, which supports children who were orphaned by the Japanese tsunami until they reach the age of 20. The charity previously organised a Japan festival on March 11 2012 to commemorate the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
