Ethiopian history and culture exchange event

On 24 December 2023, an event organized by Ms Sue Hiromi, representative of the OHAO Project, was held at SHIBAURA HAUSU.

Two secretaries from the Ethiopian Embassy attended the event and explained the history of Ethiopia. Ms Yamamoto Junko of the Ethiopian Art Club presented a picture-story show about Ethiopian coffee folklore.

Gourmet tour students from the University of Tokyo prepared Ethiopian dishes, which were served to the participants on the spot. Afterwards, we were given a talk about the UN Peace Bell and the event ended with a dance by the Ethiopian Dance Club in traditional costume…it was an event full of excitement.

We interacted with about 40 participants, and on the way back each one of them rang the peace bell and prayed for peace in the world.
