This was announced at a press conference held by authorities of Kanagawa prefecture and the Vietnamese Embassy in Japan on June 20.  

The second Viet Nam festival in Kanagawa is scheduled for October 28-30 in Yokohama City.

The event marks the development of cultural exchange between the two countries, which has been expanded to not only Tokyo but also other localities in Japan. It aims to introduce Vietnamese culture to Japanese people and contribute to the fine development of Viet Nam-Japan relations.

The first Viet Nam festival in Kanagawa (Viet Nam Festa in Kanagawa 2015) made a good impression on the people of Kanagawa.

Addressing the press conference, Vietnamese ambassador to Japan Nguyen Quoc Cuong expressed belief that this year’s festival will further develop the relationship between Viet Nam and Kanagawa and open up prospects for bilateral cooperation.

Diverse activities will be held this year to strengthen economic, trade, tourism and cultural connectivity between Viet Nam and Kanagawa. Visitors will have an opportunity to enjoy cultural, art and music performances and fashion shows and taste Viet Nam traditional dishes.

Vietnamese localities and enterprises will showcase their products at 100 pavilions during the festival. This year’s event is expected to attract over 400,000 people.
