Through Facebook, citizens of Moldova were presented with different regions of Japan, each accompanied by a brief description of its respective prefecture, thanks to the posters received.

In his speech, the Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Moldova, Yamada Yoichiro, mentioned that shortly after he came to Chisinau in January 2023, he wrote to all prefectural governors in Japan, asking them to send him their representative posters.

“Japan is an island country stretching from Okinawa, a subtropical area, to Hokkaido, an area with lots of snow and ice in winter. About 70% of Japan is mountainous and covered by dense forests. The volcanic activity of the mountains gives rise to numerous hot springs, or “onsen” in Japanese, offering visitors a unique experience. Japan’s coastal areas are rich in fish; I’m sure you’ve tasted sushi,” remarked Ambassador Yamada Yoichiro.

The posters will be exhibited weekly in a seasonal thematic way, as follows: 27 February – 3 March – spring; 5-10 March – summer; 12-17 March – autumn; 19-24 March – winter, also next to each poster, visitors to the exhibition can find a QR-code, to read the prefecture’s explanation. The exhibition will be open until 31 March.
