What is Canadian Nikkei?
Canadian Nikkei is a project of John Endo Greenaway. It’s a blog by, for, and about Japanese Canadian culture. It’s a work in progress, which is the best kind.

Who is John Endo Greenaway?
That’s me in the photo above. I’m a graphic designer based out of Port Moody, British Columbia. I’m also the managing editor of The Bulletin. And I’m a taiko player. Retired.

What is The Bulletin?
The Bulletin is a monthly community magazine serving the Japanese Canadian community. We’ve been publishing since 1958. That’s fifty years! I’ve been the editor since October, 1993. That’s a long time! We have 2,000 members, mostly in the lower mainland, but also across Canada, in the United States and even Japan. The Bulletin is published by the Japanese Canadian Citizens’ Association.

What is Taiko?
Taiko is a Japanese word that means “big drum.” You may have heard or seen Kodo – they are the most internationally-known group. You may have seen taiko in various commercials on TV. I was founding member of Katari Taiko, Canada’s first taiko group, way back in 1979. I was founding member and artistic director of Uzume Taiko, Canada’s first professional taiko group for twelve or so years. We made a number of CDs and toured North America and Europe. Currently I’m assistant instructor with Chibi Taiko, Canada’s first youth taiko group. My two daughters, Emiko and Kaya, are members of Chibi Taiko. The head instructor is Shinobu Homma – we used to play together in Katari Taiko many years ago.
