  • Description

    THE HOTEL N'GOR IN DAKAR, SENEGAL, WAS THE SCENE THIS WEEK OF AN EXHIBITION DEDICATED TO THE LIFE, INDUSTRY AND ART OF JAPAN. THE EXHIBITION WAS OFFICIALLY OPENED ON TUESDAY (JANUARY 20) BY MINISTER OF CULTURE, YOUTH AND SPORT, M. AMADOU MATHAR M'BOW, ACCOMPANIED BY THE JAPANESE AMBASSADOR TO SENEGAL.

    THE EXHIBITION, WHICH ALSO ATTRACTED MANY OF THE MEMBERS OF THE JAPANESE COMMUNITY IN SENEGAL, HAS PROVED A GREAT ATTRACTION TO ALL SECTORS OF THE PEOPLE OF DAKAR - FROM GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO HOUSEWIVES.

    ORGANIZED BY THE JAPANESE FOREIGN MINISTRY, THE EXHIBITION IS DESTINED TO SHOW AS MANY DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF NIPPON LIFE AS POSSIBLE. THE VERY COMPREHENSIVE NUMBER OF STANDS SHOWED SUCH OPPOSITE EXAMPLES AS THE MANUFACTURE OF TRADITIONAL, COSTUMED DOLLS TO THE TYPES OF SPORTS PRACTISED IN JAPAN OR THE ART OF IKEBANA - HOW TO ARRANGE FLOWERS IN THE UNMISTAKEABLE JAPANESE STYLE.

    APART FROM THE ACTUALLY VISIBLE AND TANGIBLE EXAMPLES OF JAPANESE LIFE DISPLAYED, THERE WERE SPECIAL INFORMATION STANDS AND LITERATURE DESCRIBING THE VARIOUS MUSICAL PRACTICES OF THE ORIENTAL ISLANDS; THE KABUKI THEATRES; "CHANOYU" - THE TEA CEREMONY; NATIONAL HOLIDAYS; CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES AND MANY OTHER EVERYDAY EVENTS.
