He may not have a sword, but this samurai is ready to present with his microphone at Pechakucha Night Kumamoto Vol. 30. This week's PKN Poster Spotlight is reminiscent of the Ukiyo-e art style from Japan’s Edo Era which includes depictions of a Heron, Kabuki actors, and the always elegant Mount Fuji.

This week's City Focus goes to Jihlava located in the beautiful Czech Republic. Jihlava has a very storied past, from being a mining town to once being the the center of the distinct culture reflecting centuries of local customs for the region. The towns German name Iglau, derives from the word hedgehog which is included on its flag and coat of arms. Such a culturally rich town is sure to make great PechaKucha nights, like on January 11.
