Currently, there are approximately 160,000 foreign nationals residing in Kanagawa Prefecture. There is a demand for building a rich multicultural society in which we can “live together” through understanding the diverse values and cultures of each other. Earth Festa Kanagawa, with the aim of realizing a multicultural society, is a festival where residents of different nationalities and cultures can gather, meet each other and promote their individual cultures and ways of thinking. In order to create a place for mutual understanding, ethnic groups in Kanagawa, non government organizations, and citizen volunteers combine their efforts from the planning stage to make this festival. Food stalls, bazaars, stage events, forums, experience-based workshops, ethnic music experiences, cinema and other programs are held. We are aiming to offer a place where many foreign residents can participate.
