On July 14, an opening reception for the Japan Foundation’s traveling exhibition “Manga Hokusai Manga” was held at the Japan Information and Cultural Centre (JICC). As the reception also commemorated the first anniversary of the opening of the JICC since June last year, Ambassador Ishii mentioned in his speech that about 25 events were held since then, thanks to the cooperation of many people. The reception was attended both by persons who have cooperated in past events as well as people with a fond interest in the current exhibition. During the reception, the attendants enjoyed the photographs and movies projected as well as the exhibition.
The exhibition “Manga Hokusai Manga” will be held until September 20.
