I invite readers to come to the Bookfest International Book Salon and step into the world of Japanese literature and culture. They will thus have the opportunity to discover a new Japan, with which they have never met before,” said Japan’s ambassador to Romania Hiroshi Ueda. Special guests will be Japanese writers and book authors about Japan, who will guide readers through the world of their creations. At the Japanese stand also awaits them a wide range of events related to different aspects of Japanese culture: from manga, which has a long tradition in Japan, being as popular as literature, to history and art. The Bookfest International Book Salon is organized by the Romanian publishers Association, under the aegis of the Romanian publishers Federation, with the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Japanese Embassy in Bucharest. Bookfest has local editions in Timisoara, Cluj-Napoca, Targu Mures, Brasov and another international edition in Chisinau. Details, on the official page of the project: www.bookfest.ro.
