Japanese artifacts on display in Hanoi
Update: Mar 03, 2014
As many as 70 artifacts depicting Japan’s historical events and its traditional culture are on exhibit at 25 Tong Dan Street in Hanoi.

Featured attractions include archeological items, paintings, statues, handicraft products and documents from the Jomon dynasty (around 12,000-2,400 years ago) to the Edo dynasty (1603-1868), organised into nine themes.

They illustrate Japan’s ancient ceramic and bronze products, Buddhist sculpture, Buddhist rituals tools, Japan with a struggle against the Mongol Empire, historical exchange between Viet Nam and Japan, Japanese Edo ceramic products (during the 17-18th centuries), Samurai arts and collection of cultural exchange.

The exhibition aims to help visitors gain a better understanding of Japan’s traditional culture and historical exchanges between Viet Nam and Japan.

On the occasion, a book featuring Japanese culture has been published, marking a new progress in bilateral cooperation ties in promoting cultural heritages of two countries.

Viet Nam and Japan have a deeply rooted cultural and trade relationship, which dates back to the 14th century. 

Since then the two governments have incrementally increased national diplomatic ties and have initiated policies designed to encourage business expansion.

In recent times, the Viet Nam National Museum of History and the Kyushu National Museum officially put several cooperative organisations in place to promote cultural exchange and ties.

They also partnered in organising exhibitions promoting bilateral relations with Viet Nam at Kyushu Museum from April to June, 2013, which attracted more than 70,000 visitors.
