We participated in Japan Habba 2015
For the past two years, 2013 and 2014, Internet Academy has participated at the Japan Habba - an Indo-Japanese Cultural Exchange Festival. This year as well, on the 15th of February, we geared up to take part in the Festival held at Jnana Jyothi Auditorium (Bangalore University). Our students also visited the event, and we really enjoyed discovering new things about Japanese and Indian culture together.
Japan Habba 2015 at Jnana Jyoti Auditorium (Bangalore University)
Japan Habba is an annual event conducted to celebrate the cultures and ties between the two countries. Since its inception in 2005, Japan Habba has been held ten times in Bangalore, with each year centered around a particular theme decided by the Committee.
In 2013, the theme for Japan Habba was KIZUNA, or "Ties of Friendship"; 2014 centered around DARUMA - a traditional Japanese Wishing Doll, and the theme for 2015 was UCHIWA - a traditional Japanese fan. Over 1,200 Uchiwa were shipped in from Japan for the occasion.
As Internet Academy has its roots in Japan, we were one of the Japan-based companies at the event. We received excellent feedback about our training activities from not only those that were from Japan, but the people local to Bangalore, as well.
We had a wonderful time at the festival and look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
