Multicultural One Family Festival

An island nation with strong nationalist traditions, Japan is adapting to growing cultural, racial, and ethnic diversity because of intermarriage, a historically low birth rate, and more relaxed immigration policies. Since 2015, Global Peace Foundation Japan has sponsored multi-cultural festivals to support immigrant populations as well as minority Korean, Chinese, and Filipino peoples who call Japan home.

International communities from Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Philippines, Korea, Indonesia, India, Bangladesh, Mongolia, Bosnia/Herzegovina, Uzbekistan, Turkey, and many others celebrate the diversity of human culture with international food, traditional performances, and booths with unique cultural exhibitions.
