Promoting Japanese Culture at G-Anime

On January 28 and 29, the Embassy of Japan participated in G-anime, an anime and manga convention in Gatineau, Quebec to introduce Japanese culture and promote Japan as a tourism destination. At the booth, the Embassy provided information about the regions and cities of Japan, screened videos about Japanese culture, and offered origami paper and cultural activities. It was a good opportunity for the public to learn and experience Japanese culture.
The Embassy of Japan, in collaboration with the Japan Foundation Toronto, screened the movie "Pop in Q" (2016) on the first day. Over 30 people came to see the film.
At the Masquerade, a cosplay contest held on the first day of the event, Embassy of Japan also participated as a judge. A special award by the Embassy of Japan was also given at the Award Ceremony on the second day.
The Embassy of Japan booth was popular among the 1600 guests who attended G-Anime over the weekend.
