NDO - A festival featuring a taste of Japanese culture is scheduled to be held at the Ly Thai To flower garden in Hanoi from March 23-26.

The event – jointly organised by the Hanoi municipal People's Committee and the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam – is one of a series of activities planned to commemorate 45 years of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties.

During the four-day festival, visitors will be able to experience traditional Japanese handicrafts and delicacies, a Japanese tea ceremony, kimono fashion shows, and traditional folk dances and games.

The event will include traditional art performances such as Ca Tru (ceremonial singing) and Xam singing (ballads sung by wandering blind musicians) by artists from Hanoi.

In addition, an investment and tourism promotion programme between Hanoi and Japan, and exchange activities on education and health, will also be held during the festival.
