Update: Oct 31, 2012
The Vietnam-Japan Culture Exchange Festival 2013 is scheduled to take place at the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Culture House on February 23-24 next year.

TOUCH 2013 is being co-organized by the Vang Anh Culture Company and TOF Vietnam Company from Vietnam, and the CL Support Company from Japan, with assistance from the Consulate General of Japan in HCM City.

The festival aims to help young people learn more about Vietnamese and Japanese cultures through music, cosplay performances, cartoons, dances, games and comics.

A Cos TOUCH competition will be held to prepare for Vietnam's participation in the World Cosplay Competition in Japan in August 2013.

The festival will feature 25 stalls offering discounted books, souvenirs, and toys, as well as favourite food from both countries.

The event expects to attract about 15,000 young people from HCM City and the neighbouring areas.
