Opening with the theme of “Hope”, this year’s festival will feature traditional cuisine, cultural and music performances of both Vietnam and Japan.
Most notably, Vietnamese artists will perform water puppetry pieces for the first time to showcase the country’s rich traditional culture.
Music galas drawing the participation of famous Vietnamese singers such as Amee and Grey D are expected to enthrall locals and tourists.
Booths displaying Vietnamese handicrafts and food delicacies will be set up, with Banh Mi (baguette) and Pho (noodles) being introduced to visitors during the festival.
Participants will have the chance to don an Ao Dai (traditional long dress) and Non La (palm-leaf conical hat), helping them to gain a greater understanding of 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.
