The Embassy of Japan organised the festival at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on Saturday evening where over 1,000 Bangladeshi people interested in Japan enjoyed the festival.

“Japan Fest 2018 was organised to bring Japanese culture for Bangladeshi people at hand to further enhance amicable relations between the two countries. This was the first time for me to experience so many Japanese cultures at once,” said Anika Begum who is majoring Japanese language at Dhaka University.

Apart from various Japanese cultural displays and workshops, three renowned Japanese musicians performed in the Japanese pop song and traditional music concert in the evening, bringing additional excitement to the audience.

The event was supported by Japanese and Bangladeshi organisations; Regent Airways, Ajinomoto, Grameen UNIQLO, Honda Bangladesh, Studio Padma, Japanese Commerce and Industry Association in Dhaka, Bangladeshi Ikebana Association, Bangladesh Bonsai Association, ICARUS and students of Department of Japanese Language & Culture as well as Department of Japanese Studies, Dhaka University, said the Japanese Embassy in Dhaka.

Japan will further strengthen the bilateral relations towards the anniversary, said the Embassy.
