The program was participated in by famous artists such as Hoai Linh, Thoai My, Phi Nhung and Thanh Hang.

Nun Thich Tam Tri, Head of the Vietnamese Buddhist Association, said that in late 2017, a Japanese pagoda at the top of the mountain bordering Saitama and Gunma prefectures had no heir and the association was chosen as successor.

The pagoda was renamed as Dai An. It will connect with nine other Vietnamese pagodas throughout Japan to unite the community, bring peaceful and happy life to people and support unlucky people as well.

The pagoda has an area of about 1,500 square meters. An additional lecture hall and stupa will be built for the Vietnamese community to worship. In addition, the pagoda will open Vietnamese language classes for Vietnamese children to preserve the national culture.

The art program attracted more than 1,800 people. It is expected that a similar program will take place in Hyogo prefecture on April 21st./.
