“As Christmas draws near, we believe that one of the best gifts that we can give others is the gift of friendship and there’s no better way of celebrating the season than by doing so with some of your favorite celebrities and other famous personalities, with awesome prizes and surprises to boot,” Japan Fiesta Committee says. “With the world slowly, but surely healing from the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re hoping that everything will return to normal soon so we can start exploring the world again.”

This event is brought by the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines, Japan National Tourism Organization, The Japan Foundation, The Japanese Association Manila, Inc., and The Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Philippines Inc.
