Both two celebrities took part in last year’s event and will be on hand once more to raise the profile of the festival, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism on November 7.
The pair will also be participating in a cultural exchange to help Vietnamese tourists enjoy more culture and view the many famous sightseeing spots that are located throughout Japan’s Kanagawa prefecture.
A wide range of activities will take place during the two-day occasion, including a folk festival hosted at the Hanoi Opera House on November 17. Entrance tickets will cost VND100,000 each, with all of the money raised to be given to Nguyen Dinh Chieu school for students who suffer from visual impairments.
Following the conclusion of the festival, a trade promotion conference between Vietnam and Kanagawa prefecture will be held on November 18, with the participation of businesses from both countries.
