a new evolution in the event organization which not only yielded tangible outcomes but set an example for future Thai-related activities.

Japan-Thailand Cultural Day in Kyoto is an annual event organized by the Japan-Thailand Educational Exchange Society since 2016, with Mr. Shigeyo Kimura as its Chairman. The aim of the event is to publicize and exchange Thai and Japanese culture through various activities. During the past years, the event was organized outdoor but given the COVID-19 situation, this year’s event was adapted to be in-door incorporating the online presentation of Thai cultural dance and music such as the Japanese drum performance from Pratumkongka School in Bangkok and the Busaba Thai Classical Dance School from Nonthaburi Province.
