From its debut, Japan Expo Sud has always been striving to show Japanese culture and traditions to the attendees. To keep on the same track, in 2012, the cultural area was created in a dedicated hall, allowing the perfect peaceful atmosphere suiting Japanese traditions.
You’ve always dreamed of making an origami crane? of attending a tea ceremony? of learning how to play go or shôgi? You’re wondering what ikebana, yukata, or furoshiki mean? The cultural area at Japan Expo Sud is the right place for you: many participants are proposing demonstrations, initiations and discovery sessions.
During the previous editions, Japan Expo Sud has invited you to experience the quiet of a Japanese garden or a tea ceremony, to relax thanks to shiatsu, or to discover Kyoto through an exhibit.
Along your journey, don’t forget to stop at the stage: listen to traditional instruments and their music, such as taiko, koto or shakuhachi, discover the world of geisha at conferences, or enjoy folk shows such as shishi odori.
Japan Expo Sud is the opportunity to share your passions and discover a culture so rich it will keep on surprising you for a long time!
