As many as 70 objects depicting Japan’s historical events and its traditional culture are put on show in Hanoi, radio The Voice of Vietnam (VOV) reports.

Featured attractions include archaeological items, paintings, statues, handicraft products and documents from the Jomon Dynasty (around 12,000-2,400 years ago) to the Edo Dynasty (1603-1868), organised into nine themes.

They illustrate Japan’s ancient ceramic and bronze products, Buddhist sculpture, Buddhist rituals tools, Japan with the struggle against the Mongol Empire, historical exchange between Vietnam and Japan, Japanese Edo ceramic products (during the 17-18th centuries), Samurai arts, and collection of cultural exchange.

The exhibition aims to help visitors gain a better understanding of Japan’s traditional culture and historical exchanges between Vietnam and Japan.

On the occasion, a book featuring Japanese culture has been published, marking a new progress in bilateral cooperation ties in promoting cultural heritages of two countries.

Vietnam and Japan enjoy a deep-rooted cultural and trade relationship, which dates back to the 14th century. Since then governments of the two sides have boosted diplomatic ties and initiated policies designed to encourage trade expansion.

The Vietnam National Museum of History and the Kyushu National Museum have implemented cooperation projects to promote cultural exchange and ties./.
