A glimpse of Japan in Hanoi
Japan’s Genki festival in Vietnam 2011, an entertainment and arts event, will take place in Hanoi on April 16-17, aiming at bringing Japanese culture closer to Vietnamese and enhancing the friendship between the two countries.
The two-day festival will have various activities, including displays of silk cherry flowers and Japanese lanterns, food introduction, exhibition of large-famed paintings on four seasons in Japan, Cosplay performance, and Yosakoi dance.
During the festival, the organising board will sell souvenirs to raise fund for children who suffer from Agent Orange at the Hoa Binh Village in Thanh Xuan District, Hanoi along with launching a campaign to help Japanese victims of recent quake and tsunami.
The festival, which will take place at the Giang Vo Exhibition and Fair Centre, is organised by the Vietnam Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in collaboration with the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam.
