On this occasion, the Japan Foundation Centre for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam also held an event to help Vietnamese people learn more about sushi - a Japanese typical dish and how to make it.

This is an opportunity for visitors to explore the activities of a sushi shop in Japan and types of sushi, and learn how to make some popular sushi dishes.

Professor Hibino Terutoshi, a sushi expert and the exhibition curator, said that sushi is the most famous dish in Japanese cuisine. It originated in Southeast Asia.

With a history of more than 1,200 years, Japanese sushi has continuously changed its form and still exists today as a specialty dish of localities.

Sushi is not only a common dish but also a cultural symbol, associated with Japanese history, he said, adding that the event is expected to help the Vietnamese public gain more understanding about sushi as well as Japanese culinary culture./.
