Opening with the theme of “Hope”, this year’s festival will feature traditional cuisine, cultural and musical performances from both Vietnam and Japan.

Vietnamese artists will be performing water puppetry pieces for the first time, offering viewers insight into the country’s rich traditional culture. This is a particularly noteworthy event.

Music galas featuring renowned Vietnamese singers such as Amee and Grey D are anticipated to provide locals and tourists with a thrilling experience.

Booths featuring Vietnamese handicrafts and delicious food will be set up during the festival. Visitors will be able to try Banh Mi (baguette) and Pho (noodles).

Participants will be given the opportunity to wear an Ao Dai (traditional long dress) and Non La (palm-leaf conical hat), which will help them to have a deeper insight into Vietnamese culture.

The Vietnam Festival was first held in 2018. This year marks the 13th edition of the event in Japan, making significant contributions to enhancing unity and understanding between Vietnamese and Japanese people, as well as deepening the fine relationship between the two countries.
