The Japanese Embassy in Luxembourg and Kawagoe Style Club held a cultural event this afternoon at the Japanese Ambassador's residence.

The event programme featured tastings of traditional Japanese food, such as Yakitori (grilled chicken/pork) and Japanese curry, and a selection of Sake, as well as various workshops and performances. For instance, guests were treated to a Maki-e demonstration as well as a Shodo (Japanese calligraphy) workshop.

The event also included a lecture by Eiji Suga (who came to Luxembourg specifically for this event) on the seasonal festival Sekku which celebrates each stage of life.
