The Vietnam - Japan Cultural Exchange Festival 2017 will be held from July 28 to 30 at Han River Port in the central city of Da Nang and aims to strengthen the solidarity and friendship between the two countries and attract international visitors, especially Japanese, to the city and Vietnam.

Some 150 booths have been designed in the typical festival styles of Vietnam and Japan and will not only introduce and promote products such as technology, electronics, fashion, handicrafts, cosmetics, and food but also have a space for culture, cuisine, tourism, and education exchanges, together with calligraphy performances, a Kimono fashion show, a Japanese tea ceremony, a Japanese speaking contest, film screenings, a Cosplay contest, a Japanese make-up art and beauty contest, and a workshop on Japanese tourism in Da Nang.

The festival will also bring together a large number of artists from both countries. The highlight is a street performance involving more than 100 artists along Bach Dang Road at the opening ceremony on the night of July 28, bringing together traditional and modern music styles from the two cultures.

The Japanese Ambassador in Vietnam will be in attendance, as will local government officials, government officials from Japan, representatives from Japanese organizations and enterprises in Da Nang, and hundreds of university students, artists, artisans, and business leaders.

Direct flights from Da Nang to Osaka and return, operated by Jetstar Pacific Airlines and starting from September 1, will be also introduced.
