The first-ever Japan-Myanmar Pwe Taw opened Saturday, with hundreds of people thronging to enjoy the food and activities on offer at the Japan-style festival being held at Shwe Htut Tin ground in Yangon.
Celebrating the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Myanmar and Japan, the Embassy of Japan in Myanmar organized the two-day event with the aim of letting Myanmar people enjoy a taste of Japan at the wide variety of food venders offering Japanese traditional confections and also activities including a goldfish scooping game.
Hordes of festival-goers descended on the fairground on the opening day, leading to long lines forming at food vendors while booths of Japanese firms displaying their products were packed with visitors.
Other attractions include a karaoke contest where young people are very much welcomed and the NHK World booth which is showing off the latest Kawaii trends from Tokyo including so-called fake desserts, while Domo, the official mascot of Japan’s public broadcaster, is on hand for snapshots with visitors.
The nights at the festival will come alive with a series of stage performances by Tao, a Japanese drumming ensemble, Myanmar singers including Sai Sai Kham Leng and Ni Ni Khin Zaw, as well as a Kawaii fashion show.
The Japanese Embassy in Myanmar organized the festival in Myanmar to serve as a bridge to promote people to people connectivity between the two countries in cooperation with NHK, Japan International Broadcasting Inc., Myanmar National Television and Japanese companies in Myanmar.
