Takatsuki-shi Federation of the Deaf - Women's Section


Yesterday I had another opportunity to meet deaf people in Takatsuki-shi, this time at the meeting of the Takatsuki-shi Federation of the Deaf - Women's Section. It was a very hot day (35 degrees C) but the participants were very energetic and kind. Thank you for listening to (seeing, actually) my lecture and for the interesting discussion afterward. These kinds of cultural interactions between Japanese and foreigners, and deaf and hearing people are important - and it makes anthropology that much more fun.
