Held: June 30th (Th) through July 3rd (Sun) 2011.
The Japanese culture festival named “The Japan Expo” was held in the Nord-Villepinte exhibition venue, located to the north of Paris. The Japan Expo, a popular yearly event was launched by Japanese culture enthusiasts in France at the turn of the millennium. This year marked the 12th year of the Expo.
As Europe’s largest festival, the expo promotes contemporary and traditional Japanese culture. Held in a giant 100,000 square meter space, this expo provides a wide range of Japanese entertainment. During this event, SUZUKINE Co. LTD and ICHIZO Co. LTD both modeled YUZAN armors and ICHIZO dolls. We felt this exhibition reminded us of how Japanese culture has attracted attention from around the world once again.
We shall devote ourselves to making armor that incorporates old tradition and technology with a new sense of design. We hope to continue to convey the beauty of Japanese tradition and culture.
