Do you have an affinity for Japanese culture? Do you know what a Daruma Doll looks like and know its meaning?
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the sister-city relationship between Campbelltown and Japan’s Koshigaya, Campbelltown Library will be holding an exhibition of gifts supplied by the people of the Japanese city.
Included in the exhibition will be various items such as traditional Japanese musical instruments, antique doll figurines and a traditional bamboo fishing rod. One of the more significant contributions from the exchange was the creation of a traditional Japanese garden that now surrounds the Campbelltown Art Centre. Information about this, along with other amazing treasures, will feature in the display. A strong connection has developed between the two cities since the agreement was signed in April 1984 by the then mayors of both cities.
