A Vietnam-Japan cultural exchange event was held in the northern province of Bac Giang on March 19, as one of the activities in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the two countries’ diplomatic ties.
Visitors to the event had a chance to experience an AR (augmented reality) technology cherry blossom (Sakura) garden, enjoy typical cuisine of Japan and Bac Giang, wear traditional Japanese and Vietnamese costumes, visit Tay Yen Tu spiritual – ecological tourism complex, and visit booths showcasing OCOP (One commune-one product) products of the province.
On this occasion, the Japan-Vietnam Friendship Association in Chukyo region and Yokoi Mould Vietnam Co., Ltd presented 120 sakura trees to the Vietnamese locality to be planted at the complex.
Japanese Deputy Ambassador to Vietnam Watanabe Shige showed his hope that these trees will grow up well and create beautiful landscapes to serve tourists.
Since 2015, more than 700 sakura trees – a symbol of Japan – have been granted to Bac Giang.
