「Armenia Culture Week 2016 Cultural Rendezvous With Japan」was held from March 22 to 27 in HILLSIDE TERRACE, Daikanyama. This was among major events, which the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia organizes annually in order to introduce Armenian culture to the Japanese public and to promote cultural exchanges between the two nations.
The week was saturated with many cultural occasions – exhibitions, concerts, short films, reception etc. They were implemented in close collaboration with our Japanese friends, among which is IAC – International Artists Center – our long-time partner. We are sure that our guests enjoyed the “Food Connection” part of the reception, where our IAC friends introduced several Armenian and Japanese dishes that were prepared using the same ingredients.
Such cultural exchanges unquestionably stimulate the deepening of understanding and friendship between nations, and we are deeply grateful to all our friends in Japan who played a significant part in organizing and implementing the events.
