It’s a pleasure to announce “GYRE Session 2022 with Dervish Online” with enormous cooperation from Plankton, Dervish and 35 Japanese artists who put so much effort into Cruinniú 2022, which had to be cancelled despite efforts to proceed by the INJ.
“The title is ‘GYRE Session (swirl session)’ which is a circular concept that connects Japan and Ireland. “It was a great gathering with 35 performers coming together,” commented Plankton.
Thanks a million to Dervish and all the Japanese artists who took time out of their busy schedules to participate in the session.
Have a wonderful St.Patrick’s Day!

To all our Parade participants, supporters and volunteers,

Due to an ongoing concern of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Irish Network Japan committee officially announces the cancellation of 2022 Tokyo’s St Patrick’s Day parade. It is with heavy heart that the parade has been cancelled since 2020, but public safety and health are the first priority. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.

This year, however, the INJ (Tokyo) will have our online event under the theme of “Cruinniú” in place of the annual parade. This will be a live stream video where guests from Japan and Ireland discuss all aspects of Irish Culture in Japan. The event will include interviews with several well known Irish and Japanese personalities as well as dance and music performances.

It will stream live on the 20th of March on Zoom. Please check our HP or SNS for more information, for more details.
Thank you for your understanding and hope to see you all next year.
