The Japanese diplomat will speak on the characteristics of his nation’s orchard and then inaugurate an exhibition of bonsai from the Bonsai Habana collective.
Held in Havana from Nov. 2 to 11, the Japanese Culture Day in Havana is dedicated to the 125th anniversary of migrations to Cuba from the so-called Country of the Rising Sun.
To close the event, the Valonia Showcase is preparing for a concert on the 11th with anime songs, a martial arts exhibition with various styles of karate and the awarding of the 4-koma contest organized by that institution together with the Embassy of Japan.
A cosplay contest is also included among the activities for the closing of the Japanese celebration, in which participants dress up as characters from comics, video games and manga.
The event kicked off last week with the opening of the photo exhibition ‘Elegy of Japan’, at the Palacio del Marques de Arcos at the Havana Historic Center.
