NDO – Hanoi youths will have an opportunity to explore Japanese culture during the Taiyou Matsuri (Sun Festival), which will take place at the Vietnam National University of Agriculture in Hanoi, on March 13.

The event, the second of its kind, aims to create a free venue for students to boost exchanges with the Japanese-speaking community in Hanoi, as well as foreigners who share a passion for the Japanese culture and language.

The festival will introduce visitors to cultural practices, signature dishes and folk games of the two countries.

Visitors are invited to learn Japanese calligraphy and Origami (Japanese paper folding art), try on Kimono and Yukata (casual summer kimono), as well as a sumo wrestler costume, and make Japanese traditional masks and dolls.

They can also take part in a performance of cosplay costumes and a lucky draw with many interesting prizes.
