A Japanese Micro Brewery and a Closer Look at the Brain
Presentations As any true beer connoisseur will tell you, all beers are not created equal. In this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94), Shiro Yamada talks about the micro brewery he helped create to make a better beer (Nippon Craft Beer Inc.) and the "KAGUA" scented ale he's been producing. This presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 8) gets rather "heady," as Pierre Magistretti takes everyone on a detailed tour of the brain, and other aspects of newrobiology (the study of the nervous system). Posters New on the Tumblr blog today is the poster you see above, for the upcoming PKN Nagoya Vol. 12. The event will be held on August 24 at Montage Lounge. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QniQ5qxaubQ Videos Dnipropetrovsk's PKN Vol. 2 was yesterday (or is possibly still happening as we write this), and organizer Volodymyr Nedogoda has shared the video you see above, to give us an idea of what the city's Vol. 1 -- held back in May -- was like. Calendar There are two events on tap for today (August 1): PKN Glasgow Vol. 9 and PKN Azores Vol. 3. Tomorrow gets a bit busier, with the following three events: PKN Winter Harbor Vol. 6, PKN Springfield, IL Vol. 8, and PKN Victoria Vol. 10.

Let Hidekazu Hirai (of Peace Graphics) bring you on a tour of his design work, running through what inspires him to produce what he does. The presentation is in Japanese, but as you'll see, it's a visual feast of interesting Japanese graphic and packaging design. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Nagoya Vol. 10.

PKN Nagoya Vol. 7
It's been quite a while since we've gotten a good look at a PechaKucha Night in Nagoya, and so we were quite happy when organizers sent in a few photos from their recent Vol. 7. As you'll see, the event was held outdoors, and so we thank everyone who braved the cold weather to take in the presentations. That's some terrific lighting as well!

The next PechaKucha Night in Nagoya (Vol. 3) is set to happen February 6, but today we take a look at one of the amazing presentations from last October's Vol. 2, courtesy of co-organizer Mitsuyo Hattori.
When Shunichiro Hisada, a noh musician, started to talk about how Japanese people have been living with nature, and about the understanding of what "ku," the emptiness was, while showing beautiful photos of Japanese nature, the atmosphere changed.... and when he actually started to play his Japanese hand drum and sing noh, everyone in the space stopped talking... even those people chatting and chatting around the bar in the back... What a strong impact the little hand drum can give, and how tranquil the air could become with the voice in noh singing -- he gave us a very awakening moment...
