Italian Night at Setouchi, Aegean Sea of the Orient in Japan

Italian Embassy & its consulate general and KIF Japan hosted an exclusive cross-cultural networking event "Italian Night" to strengthen the friendship of Italian and Japanese communities at the Hotel Limani in Seto Inland Sea, also known as Setouchi in Okayama Prefecture, Japan. The Setouchi region, the “Aegean Sea of the Orient”, is located in the west of the Japanese archipelago.

At Italian Night, there were approximately 50 Italian people living in Japan and Japanese residents who are interested in experiencing about Italian culture, business, tourism, foods and drinks, language as well as meeting native Italian people coming together to learn from each other and make new friends. The participants all enjoyed the special night listening to Italian live music by native Italian signers while eating the delicious Italian foods and wines in the relaxing, elegant and spacious environment at the hotel right by the ocean at night.

The event turned out to be very successful international people-to-people grassroots activity in the countryside of Japan!
