MIP: Cultural Events to Take Place As Part of Year of Japan in Ukraine August through October

The Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine and the Embassy of Japan in Ukraine continue informing on the events taking place in our country as part of the Year of Japan in Ukraine.

The news agency Ukrinform has prepared the infographics on the events, most of which are scheduled by the Japan's Embassy for August through October.

The head of the sector of media communications of MIP, Maryna Sobotyuk, informed that Ukrainians had attended "a fair bit of events" relating to Japan's culture over half a year.

The events were organized primarily by the Embassy in order to communicate Japan's cultural and historical values to the amicable Ukrainians, as well as by local authorities, museums, and libraries with the participation of proponents of Japanese culture.

"We too prepare information materials for the Japanese to promote Ukrainian values and individualities. By being so aware of one another, we not only establish bonds of friendship but also lay the groundwork for developing close relations," Sobotyuk noted.

In turn, political attaché of the Embassy of Japan Mr. Hirano Takashi announced that his photo exhibition was due to open soon with the assistance of the IZOLYATSIA Foundation (IZONE).

"The aim of the photo exhibition is to present modern Japanese photo art. These photos are not a classic example of a sort of Japan's traditional image but exclusively an accomplishment of my own artistic initiative.

"In addition, this exhibition will also be the first cooperation between the Embassy of Japan and the IZOLYATSIA Foundation, a unique group of people the majority of which has been evacuated from the city Donetsk."

It should be noted that the Embassy of Japan continues to ask for participation in the photo competition "The Year of Japan in Ukraine".

Please be reminded that, according to a decree by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, the year of 2017 was announced as the Year of Japan in Ukraine in order to encourage bilateral cooperation and strengthen ties between Ukraine and Japan.

To this end, the MIP, together with the Embassy of Japan in Ukraine, is planning to inform the public of a number of events which will help acquaint the Ukrainians with Japanese culture, traditions, and history.
