The 12th Citizen Exchange Center Festival

Date: November 23, 2016
Aoba Ward Citizen Exchange Center
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) Annual General Meeting will be held in Yokohama next year,
Mainly playing traditional instruments from ADB participating countries such as Vietnam and Indonesia,
We have prepared a wide variety of programs.
At the annual stamp rally, children run around with all their might,
The smile when you get one of the many kinds of prizes was impressive.
The free tea service from each country was also well received.
I believe that through the Center Festival, I was able to contribute to international exchange in the region.

11th Citizen Exchange Center Festival

On November 23, 2015, we participated in the 11th Aoba Community Exchange Center Festival held at the Community Community Center. Indonesian bamboo instrument performance and Colombian dance full of international flavor. This year's new project is titled "Ethnic costumes from various countries." A spectacular "fashion show" of people from Bhutan, Indonesia, Colombia, Vietnam, Korea, and of course Japan. We all took pictures and had a great time. On the other hand, Japanese dance was popular among foreigners. We were able to provide beautiful kimonos and elegant dances. Also, the tea service from around the world is very busy all day long. Making badges with names written in the characters of various countries (Bhutan, Vietnam, China, Korea) is always a big hit with children. The origami class is a quiet space that doesn't feel like a festival. Children running around the exchange center are participating in a stamp rally to win luxurious prizes. The international exchange lounge was very crowded this year as well.
