Anne Bischof, Corey Beron, Rachel Cheeseman, Yoshiko Okada Green, and Akiko Gravender of the Japanese Club at IUSB.

This is part of the vision, the dream that has kept IUSB Senior Lecturer Yoshiko Okada Green and the Japanese Club working for ten years to bring Yoshino cherry trees to the IUSB campus.
It has taken ten years for Green trying to bring the same Yoshino cherry trees to our campus.
From the approval of Bloomington architects for the location finally chosen, to the approval of a landscaper, Green and the IUSB students of the Japanese Club have kept trying.
These trees will grow while Japan heals," Green said.
She wants Japan to know we care and we are here supporting their recovery.

SouthBendTribune.com: Taking tea, Japanese-style

"Watch every hand movement," Yoshiko Green advised the students, "every hand movement has meaning."

Shie Otani's hands worked with several objects, one at a time.
First she opened a natsume containing powdered green tea.
Next, she used a chasen or whisk to mix the tea in water.
Then she heated the tea in a kama or kettle.
Finally, she poured the tea into a bowl.
The 15 or so Penn High School students in Bonnie Wolfgang's Japanese class watched her silently, on a recent afternoon.
Otani, a Fort Wayne resident originally from Hiroshima, was wearing a kimono and obi.
Of the students, a group of seven sat on their legs inside the small tearoom in the Hannah Lindahl Children's Museum in Mishawaka.
A few minutes earlier, Green, a Japanese lecturer at IUSB, had instructed the students on the history and culture of sadoo, a Japanese tea ceremony.
When the tea was finally ready, Otani set the bowl on the floor, facing Green.
Green leaned over it, picked it up with both hands, rotated it clockwise in two 90-degree motions, and took a few sips.She then passed it to the student next to her, who did similarly, until everyone had drunk.

Yoshiko Green, a professor at IUSB, agreed.While some anime may violate certain language conventions and confuse beginning students, Green said she thinks it can help with listening comprehension.

Although she said she's not familiar with current anime or manga, Green said what she has seen of it does accurately represent the conventions of everyday life in Japan, such as the way people greet each other, the style of their homes, and the way they bathe.
Green was born in Japan and was a fan of anime and manga decades ago, before it became popular in the United States.She said the style of animation seems to change with each generation, much like other art forms.

SouthBendTribune.com: 1,000 cranes

Yoshiko Green, who teaches Japanese language and culture at Indiana University South Bend, holds an origami figure.

Now, as the teacher of Japanese at Indiana University South Bend for the past 12 years, Green is bringing this inspiring story to her students and the larger community.
"She passed away at 12," Green said, "but this story has become so big in Japan.
When I was young I didn't really think to send to Hiroshima," said Green.
Over the last five months, Green and a few of her students have made a display of 1,000 origami cranes to send to the Children's Peace Monument in Hiroshima.
Green said, "My Japanese students are interested in Japan and know about the Hiroshima bomb and don't want anything like that to happen again."
But she couldn't, so we made for her so this will not happen again," Green said.
Although Green was not born in 1945, she recalled, "My friend, her mother was in Hiroshima, she born, she has effect from the bomb."
When the Japanese Club members learned about Sadako and the 1,000 cranes from Green, they searched the Internet for the 1,000 crane story.
"They are like my children," said Green.
The chemistry department at IUSB has an octagonal box on display that Green made demonstrating the mathematical and geometric properties of origami.
"Japanese stay home, have very good fingers, very pretty paper, been doing origami since the 14th century," Green said.
Green will have a booth at the Girl Scouts Conference at IUSB May 22 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., where she will teach origami art.
She will also be present at the Human Spirits Uniting meeting from 1 to 4 p.m. July 3 at the St. Joseph County Public Library in South Bend.The public is invited to spend the afternoon in dialogue with Green, folding into the origami cranes hopes and desires for peace and healing.
