The Consulate General of Japan, together with the municipal Youth Cultural House, organized the Vietnam-Japan festive day in HCM city on November 13.

The annual event attracted more than 1,000 people including young people and students aiming to promote cultural exchanges and mutual understanding between Japan and Vietnam.

Diverse traditional activities were held during the event including coloring Japanese paintings, introducing Japanese culinary arts and exploring study opportunities in Japan.

Takako Jjita, a well-known Japanese gastronomist, introduced the culture of Japanese cuisine and the history of sushi with demonstrations on how to make it.

Furudate Seiki, who is in charge of cultural affairs at the Consulate General of Japan in HCM City said that the event was also an opportunity for Japan to highlight its efforts to overcome the consequences caused by the powerful earthquake and tsunamis last March. (Source: VOV)
