The event, as part of activities marking the 50th anniversary of Vietnam – Japan diplomatic ties, attracted more than 4,000 attendants.

Deputy Consul General of Japan in Da Nang City, Shimonishi Kiyoshi, said the festival had a profound significance for students who are learning Japanese. This was an opportunity for young Vietnamese people to learn about Japanese culture, thereby promoting friendship between the two countries.

The Vietnam – Japan Cultural Exchange Festival reproduced the cultural space and unique cultural identities of the two nations such as Japanese tea space, Origami paper folding art, Vietnamese calligraphy arts and Japanese comics gallery, and the introduction of Ao Dai (Vietnamese traditional long dresses), kimono (Japanese traditional costumes), folk games and traditional festivals.

In addition, an area was arranged to showcase photos highlighting the relations between Dong A University and Japan.
