A Hoi An-Japan cultural exchange opened in Hoi An ancient town in the central province of Quang Nam on August 21.

During the two-day event, various cultural activities will be held, including an exhibition showcasing photos on Hoi An ancient town and documentary photos on Hoi An-Japan cultural exchanges and an artistic painting exhibition entitled “Colours of Heritages”.

There will be a seminar on cultural heritage preservation and tourism development, an introduction of Japanese cuisine and performances of Japanese musical instruments and children’s games.

In the opening night, Vietnamese and Japanese artists jointly performed special dances from both countries such as lion and royal dances.

The event, co-organised by the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Hoi An People’s Committee, offers a chance for artists in particular and the people of the two countries in general to exchange and share their own special cultural characteristics, thus helping boost the friendship between the two nations./.
