Last year’s festa took attendees on a unique cultural voyage, with Elephant’s Trunk Park hosting the traditional Vietnamese “Water Puppetry” show, an art form boasting a thousand-year legacy.

But that’s not all! The festa comes alive with music live performances, talk shows, and Vietnamese traditional musical instruments playing in the background. It’s a mini Hanoi right here in Yokohama.
