According to Vietnamese Consul General in Fukuoka Vu Chi Mai said at a press conference on November 13, the annual event has drawn the attention of overseas Vietnamese and local residents in Kuyshu-Okinawa, while serving as a vivid illustration of the Party and State’s care for the Vietnamese community in foreign countries, including those in Japan.

During the program, various traditional cultural activities during the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday will be held such as human chess, nem con (throwing a sacred ball through a ring) and nhay sap (dance between bamboo poles).

In addition, an art program will be organized with performances by Vietnamese artists, models and actors as well as representatives from the Vietnamese community in Japan.

Particularly, there will be the record 1,500 people in ao dai (long dress) forming a map of S-shaped Vietnam, and Fukuoka 2024 Ao Dai Week with 180 items created by six famous Vietnamese designers.

Ms. Mai added that there will be 70 booths introducing Vietnamese and Japanese dishes, high-quality products and handicrafts from both countries.

There are over 20,000 Vietnamese people working and studying in Fukuoka./.
