Jak Japan Matsuri 2012

Last Sunday, September 30, 2012, I went to the fourth year of Jak-Japan Matsuri, a Japanese festival on Jakarta as a celebration of a good relationship between Japan and Indonesia.

The event, as always, was held in Monas, Jakarta’s landmark.I wrote this post in both Bahasa Indonesia and English. Click on the image that represents your language 🙂

Minggu lalu, tepatnya tanggal 30 September 2012, Jak-Japan Matsuri diadakan lagi untuk yang ke-empat kalinya…dan tentunya gw pun datang lagi. Acara ini merupakan perayaan atas kerjasama yang baik antara Jepang dan indoneisa. Seperti tahun-tahun sebelumnya, acara ini diadakan di Monas.

Gw tulis post ini dalam dua bahasa, Indonesia dan Inggris karena sebagian besar pengunjung setia blog ini ga bisa berbahasa Indonesia. Silakan klik image yang sesuai dengan bahasa yang anda mengerti 🙂

    Seems like you had a great time at this festival, Novia 🙂 I am quite envious of you! Wish we’d have big events like that as well (and we should! Because the historical relationship between The Netherlands and Japan is also problematic)!

      I always had great time on Jak-Japan matsuri…I enjoyed the food, hanging out with my friends and of course dancing the Bon Odori.

      As you said ‘wish’, is that mean there is no Japan festival in Netherlands? I think someone linked me a taiko performance in Dutch once…and taiko is usually played in festivals…or maybe I wrongly remember, maybe it wasn’t in Dutch.

        I honestly don’t know. Perhaps there are smaller festivals? There is a Japanese museum in the city I work in (Leiden). I really have to visit one of these days, they also occasionally organise Japanese events.

          You have a museum there? I don’t think there is a Japanese museum here! at least not that I have heard of.

    Oops. Posted my comment too fast.

    Bon Odori looks fun. That was quite the crowd. Glad you had fun.

      Bon Odori is the best part of Japanese Matsuri (festival) in my opinion. I love dancing together with people like that and there is a part where we have to hold the hands of people next to us (both left and right) and then run forward and backward together while still holding hand…that part for me is a nice way to have fun with people we never met before.

      Thank you Audrey…it was a blast 🙂

      I forgot to take picture at night last year but I made sure I did it this year.

      It was fun…festivals are always fun, in my opinion 😉
