The space will span across Nguyen Thi Minh Street and areas around Cau Pagoda (Japanese Covered Bridge).

Highlight of the two-day event is a ceremony to receive a red seal ship model as a gift from the Japanese prefecture of Nagasaki.

The model rebuilds the ship once carrying Princess Ngoc Hoa to her husband’s home in Nagasaki. Ngoc Hoa was a princess of the Nguyen Dynasty, who married Araki Sotaro, a Japanese businessman in Hoi An nearly 400 years ago. Their marriage became a symbol of friendship between the two localities and nations.
