Japanese Cultural Events in Pakistan

A major step in promotion of cultural relations was taken in October/ November 1995, when the Embassy introduced many Japanese cultural events such as Calendars Exhibitions, Japanese Film Festivals, Children Art & Speech Competitions about Japan, Ikebana Workshop, Haiku Mushaira etc. as a regular annual Japanese cultural events at different cities of Pakistan. These seem to have become well established in the minds of Pakistani people. In addition to these events which are organized annually by the Embassy in Islamabad and Consulate General of Japan in Karachi, a number of exhibitions, cultural troupes comprising famous Japanese traditional music, stage performers and scholars for delivering lectures are sent to Pakistan by the Japan Foundation to introduce Japanese culture to the people of Pakistan.
