Tourism and Cultural Exhibition of the Japan Booth at the Ottawa Travel and Vacation Show


On April 4th, Algonquin College hosted the 22nd Celebration of Cultures where the Embassy of Japan was in attendance with a cultural booth.

Celebration of Cultures is an annual event and organized by Algonquin Students’ Association to bring international experiences to the College’s students and staff. 25 diplomatic missions in Ottawa participated this year.

At the event, many students and college staff, and also other countries’ participants, visited the Japan Booth and enjoyed Japanese culture by folding origami and writing their names in Japanese with calligraphy brushes and ink.
