Culture and Grants





Japan Festival 2019 was held at Veröld, Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute of Foreign Languages, co-hosted by the Embassy of Japan and the Univesity of Iceland. Most of the programmes in this event were organised by the university students, who entertained the visitors with various Japan related programmes, such as Japan-inspired dance, martial arts, cosplay competition and manga drawing. On top of our most popular sushi-making workshops, Japanese Embassy hosted special workshops for manga drawing this year, instructed by a professional Manga artist Ms. Chie Kutsuwada from the U.K. Both workshops ended with great sucess with so many happy participants.
