Come join us in celebrating the diverse cultures of Osaka! Everyone is welcome.

Historically, Osaka has been a place where people of diverse cultures and backgrounds have created an inclusive life together. However, with racism and discrimination increasing in recent years, it is increasingly important for our community to come together and confront these social issues.

To take charge in ending discrimination in the society we live in and appreciate what makes our city interesting, we are holding an event in Osaka Minami to get together, engage in cultural exchange, and make a BANG!

We may be able to find the key to resolving our problems together, and realize that all the problems that we face are connected.

As you enjoy music, dancing, and cuisine from various countries, you can talk, get informed, and try and make an image of the society that you want to create. On this day, you can make it a reality!

The night stage will feature live performances from many regions and ethnicities. There will also be a variety of both exhibitors, including food vendors, non-profit organizations, business enterprises working for multicultural unity and minority support, and much more!

Event date and time: November 20, 2016

Location: Minatomachi River Place
1-3-1 Minatomachi, Naniwaku, Osaka City at the intersection of Sennichimae and Yotsubashi street.
