Organization of a traditional wedding celebration in Japan

Organizing a traditional wedding celebration in Japan

A plan for Seating guests

The traditional plan for Seating guests at a wedding in Japan is a complex and deeply hierarchical system. “Kamiza” — the word in the Japanese language, which designates the place of honor in the room, assume that it must be the warmest, most comfortable, and located furthest from the door. The last characteristic refers to the period of feudalism in Japan, when this arrangement was considered the most secure and also in the event of an attack on the house. Historically, the status of a person was shown by the thickness of the Mat on which he sits. However, since the flat tatami became more available and suitable in the home, the Seating arrangement became the main indicator of social status.

Inherent in the culture of norms and rules seems to dictate that the main purpose of “Kekkon Hiroen” (wedding reception) is the placement of guests at the table so that no one was hurt reserved for him. Guests are fitted in accordance with their age (very respected quality in Japanese culture), social status and relation to the newlyweds, since they are the most important people of the wedding celebration.

The construction of “Grand garden of Juche architecture” reached its peak in 1980-e years thanks to the financial support of the USSR: it then began to build a triangular rügen hotel with five revolving restaurants on top, not completed to this day. However, since then, Pyongyang has remained socialist realism in the spirit of construction, combining monumentalism and militarism, visual images of Stalin’s Empire and Korean folklore.

“Architectural era” Kim Jong UN remains true to the tradition, but in a different way: first, construction is underway on the money already Chinese investors, and secondly, much attention has been paid to the entertainment industry. If all over the world North Korean leader know by frequent nuclear threats and ruthless executions of undesirables, at home Continue reading
