A festival which celebrates the diversity of Vietnam and Japan’s culture and cuisine will take place later this month, the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism said Tuesday.

The fest, which has so far attracted 13 delegations from many prefectures of Japan, is scheduled to kick off in Da Nang City, in central Vietnam, on August 28, and last until August 30.

People who love the East Asian country’s culture will be pleased thanks to 60 booths featuring Japanese specialties such as Udon and Champon noodles, sashimi, and Kasutera cake; as well as unique art forms including Soranbushi dancing, tea ceremonies and drum performances.

This will also be a good opportunity for both countries to exchange information in terms of investment, recruitment, education and tourism.

The three-day event will be jointly organized by the Department of Foreign Affairs of Da Nang and the city’s representative office in Japan.
