International Friendship Festival

Wednesday, November 23, 2022 at the Kansai International Center

The 23rd Fureai Koryu Matsuri (International Friendship Festival) was held at the The Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Kansai, for the first time in three years. The ica Original Fan Making event attracted many visitors, with about 100 people taking part, including institute trainees, parents and children. Visitors tried their hand at writing Japanese characters with brush pens to make their own unique fans.

ica’s Safi decided at the last minute, to participate in the Tajiri Collection, an ethnic costume fashion show. “I was super nervous because it was my first time, but the audience gave me such a warm welcome that I think I did well.”
