Attendance at the 5th Plaza Shinmei Festival


September 9, 2017: Mr. Asif Agah, Second Secretary, and Ms. Allyson Diaz, Public Relations Officer for the Embassy of the Islamic Republic in Afghanistan in Japan, had the pleasure of hosting a booth at the 5th Annual Plaza Shinmei Festival hosted by Minato City. Several interns also took part in the festivities.


During the festival, attendees had the opportunity to sample Afghan mixed nuts and dried fruit, gosh-e fill—a traditional Afghan cookie—and saffron tea. Attendees were also able to try on traditional Afghan clothing, which proved to be very popular. Throughout the day, the Embassy’s booth received over 400 visitors who had the opportunity to sample Afghan culture and receive literature on Afghanistan’s rich history and traditions.
