NDO - A programme to introduce Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine is scheduled to be held as part of the Japan Cultural Exchange Festival at the Children’s Palace in Hanoi from March 23-25.

The event is one of a series of activities to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan diplomatic ties.

At the event, Japanese artisans will introduce their traditional cuisines such as soba, tempura, sushi, yakisoba, and takoyaki.

Meanwhile, visitors will also have a chance to try the signature dishes of Hanoian cuisine including Pho, nem ran (spring roll), cha ca (fishcake), and bun thang (a type of noodle soup that contains up to 20 ingredients).

Additionally, a series of performances, including traditional dances and an exhibition on traditional Japanese handicraft products, will also be held during the programme.

The event aims to further enhance Vietnamese people’s understanding of the Japanese culture and strengthen the friendship and mutual understanding between the two nations.
