The second festival focused on the spirit of Fukushima and contemporary Japanese culture.
Diverse cultural activities were held during the event, including a traditional tea ceremony, Kimono fashion shows, doll painting, Japanese comedy, flower arranging showcases and an exhibition of Bonsai trees. Visitors also had a chance to participate in the exciting Yosakoi dance, and attend a Sake tasting experience.
Fukushima is well known to the Vietnamese people because of the recent tsunami and nuclear power station disasters that occurred in March 2011. These duel disasters almost destroyed this peaceful and beautiful city.
Since then, people in Fukushima have been living and working together to bring back the inherent beauty of this area.
