Vietnam Festival 2017 to kick off in Tokyo in June

The Saigon Times Daily

The Vietnam Festival 2017 will take place at Yoyogi Park in Tokyo, Japan from June 10 and 11, the Vietnam News Agency reports.

The festival would help strengthen mutual understanding between the two nations and bring Vietnamese people living in Japan closer together, said Deputy Ambassador of Vietnam to Japan Nguyen Truong Son at a press conference last week.

According to the organizers, this year’s festival will also include an exhibition of over 100 booths, including 60 food booths and 40 booths offering souvenir items. The event will also feature art performances in an effort to introduce the images of Vietnam’s history, culture and people to Japanese people. 

Coming to the upcoming event, tourists will have the opportunity to enjoy the taste of Vietnamese delicious food, cultural programs and art performances. The event is expected to attract the participation of 150,000 visitors while last year saw the number climbing to 200,000 visitors, the highest-ever.  

Apart from culinary and cultural exchange activities, the festival is expected to bring guests beautiful performances of talented artists from Japan and Vietnam. Vietnamese invited artists include singers Ho Quynh Huong, Tieu Chau Nhu Quynh and Ngo Kien Huy. In addition, shows highlighting ao dai (Vietnamese long dress) will be available at the event.

The Vietnam Festival was first held in Japan in 2008 to mark the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Japan.
