HIGHLIGHT JAPAN EXPO MALAYSIA 2020
MESSAGE FROM JAPANESE AMBASSADOR TO MALAYSIA
H.E. OKA HIROSHI
Ambassador Extraordinary and
Plenipotentiary of Japan to Malaysia
I’m truly excited that Japan Expo Malaysia will hit the scene again this year by marking another milestone of its history with going online in “New Normal” at this difficult time. The Expo will bring experience of cool Japanese culture including anime, cosplay, J-Pop, dance and fashion right at your home or wherever you are connected. In 2019, close to 200,000 people attended Japan Expo Malaysia, and this year I expect much more people would be able to enjoy the spectacles the Expo presents at the very front seat through Internet. Japan Expo Malaysia 2020 will make a model in the “New Normal.”
I would like to express my deep gratitude to the organizers G-YU Creative, Siam Connection (Malaysia) and all the other partners who work hard to realize this event. The Expo will create a grand piazza where all Malaysians interested in Japan, a Japanese community in Malaysia and beyond can gather, exchange and interact. Cheer and inspiration raised at the Expo should certainly be a power for us all to overcome challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Taking this opportunity, I would like to express my best wishes for the great success of this Expo, which will further strengthen the cordial ties between people of Japan and Malaysia.
Stay safe, Stay connected to Japan through “Japan Expo” !
