                     Personal Histories of RP-Japan Relation (3)

The Japanese Studies Program cordially invites you to the third part of 
its “Personal Histories of RP-Japan Relations” series on 19 September (Tuesday) 
at 2:30 to 5:00 in the Social Sciences Conference Rooms 1 and 2. Everyone is 
invited to a simple merienda after the open forum. RSVP to 426-6001, local 5248 
or japanese at admu.edu.ph on or before September 14..

Topics and Speakers:

2:30 - 2:50
“An Adventure away from Home” by Luisito Diaz, a Japayuki-kun (male counterpart 
of Japayuki-san), is about his experiences as a migrant worker in Japan: his 
job-hopping and encounters with the yakuza.

2:50 - 3:10
“Winter in Summer” by Imelda Iwamoto Agama. As can be guessed in her middle 
name,  Imelda’s mother is half-Japanese. Imelda is a Rotarian, and has visited 
Japan to see her Japanese relatives. There, it is a Filipina married to a 
Japanese who helped her in many ways. Imelda promises to tell us about her own 
recruitment agency.	

3:10 - 3:30
“Two Years in Nagasaki,” by Sophia Marco is about her stint in a Catholic 
School in Japan, teaching English. This story will give us, among other things, 
a glimpse into the “student and teacher work brigades,” and other strategies of 
keeping the premises clean and orderly.

3:30 - 3:50
“Not a Film, Not a Play but no less Cinematic, No Less Theatrical: 30 Years of 
Japan,” by our very own Tito Valiente, is about Japan and Tito‘s memories: 
Italian students, love stories, brother of a Japanese who died in the 
Philippines in World War II. Tito says he will tell it all during the open 
forum, if you know what questions to ask. 

3:50 - 4:30
