A Vietnamese-Japanese cultural space is set to open in the UNESCO-recognised town of Hoi An in November to honour the fine relationship that exists between the two countries.
The space will cover the entirety of Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street and the area surrounding the Japanese covered bridge.
Activities within the space will include exhibitions of models of red-seal ships, a type of ship used by Japanese merchants, historical records, archaeological finds on Viet Nam-Japan trade in the 17th century and performances of tea ceremony and so on.
Visitors to the space will be able to experience Japanese and Viet Nam culture through traditional attire, music, calligraphy, lanterns, books and handicrafts.
According to the organisers of the event, the house at 6 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street will become a Japanese cultural house from 2019, where exhibitions, film screenings and other cultural exchange activities will be held by the Japanese side.
Hoi An Chairman Dinh Van Thu said that the Vietnamese-Japanese cultural space will promote cultural exchange between the two countries, helping to honour the fine bilateral relationship and diversify the tourism products of Quang Nam Province.
The space is scheduled to open on November 10 or 12.
