Visitors to the Old City Hall’s courtyard will be able to taste traditional Japanese dishes, like sushi, ramen and yakiudon, drink Japanese tea and sake, watch a karate performance, and admire the art of ikebana. Part of the programme is also an exhibition of bonsai, Japanese board games, and calligraphy and origami workshops.

The event will be closed by the performance of Yosuke Irie, a shakuhachi (Flute) artist.
