Vietnam-Japan festival scheduled in Hoi An (August 13, 2003)

A festival of culture and history will be held in Hoi An town in the central coastal province of Quang Nam from September 13-15, as part of activities to celebrate 30th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Japan.

Displaying the town's historical involvement with the Japanese, the time-honoured ties between the two countries, and their cultural similarities and differences, the festival will open with songs, dances and speeches on a floating stage moored on the Hoai River.

The three-day festival will include an exhibition on the two country's traditional relationship, displays of costume, special foods, a masquerade competition with an Asian theme, and a display about the sailing ships that used to call at Hoi An many years ago, and the traders they carried.

The Japanese side will participate with shows of the kimono and other traditional costume, the art of tea drinking, and demonstrations of paper fan making.

Other activities planned for the event, which will start a few days after the town's Full Moon Festival, are a kite-flying competition, a boat race, a wrestling tournament, and talks on the cultures of Vietnam and Japan.

The Japanese embassy is expected to contribute US $8,000 towards the cost. (VNA)
