The latest images of reconstruction in Fukushima Prefecture after the earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan two years ago will be featured at the Fukushima Festival in Hanoi from November 2-3.

Jointly organised by the Fukushima chapter of the Japan-Vietnam Friendship Association and the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam, the event is to show Fukushima’s gratitude to supports given by the Vietnamese people when the region was hit by the natural disaster.

It is also expected to contribute to promoting reconstruction in the locality, while further strengthening friendship between the two countries.

As part of the activities to mark the 40th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic relation, the event will exhibit images depicting important milestones in the diplomatic ties between Fukushima and Vietnam.

Many stalls will be set up to introduce visitors to Japanese culture, such as tea ceremonies and sake rice wine. Japanese traditional costumes will also be put on show at the event.-VNA
