We are awaiting Mr. Toshihiro AIKI, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Minister of the Embassy of Japan in Russia, to the opening ceremony of the film festival.

To participate in the Festival of Japanese Culture, in coordination with the Embassy of Japan, a master of calligraphy, Mrs. Kaori ISIDZIMA, arrives in Saratov.

Children's groups will perform at the Opening: State Budgetary Institution "Boarding school for students in adapted educational programs No. 5 of the city of Saratov", Lyceum boarding school of natural sciences. The host of the Opening Ceremony is Tatyana Pavlovna Chupikova, the leading stage master of the Youth Theater named after Yu.P. Kiseleva, Theater "Version", a teacher who prepared a large number of theater programs with children in Japanese.

Turning mentally to the history of the formation of cultural and economic relations between the Saratov region and Japan, and our history goes back more than 25 years, I would like to draw attention to the fact that the Saratov region is the only Volga region where such long-standing relations have been established with this country! And we are holding our current Festival for the twentieth first time. We can note with satisfaction that Japan has become closer, despite the distances, because the relations between us and the Japanese are getting closer and closer, as they say in Japan: "from heart to heart."

I would like to once again note that 2020 - the Year of Japan in the Russian regions in relation to the Saratov region can become a key one in the history of our relations. Our potential for public diplomacy is high enough in establishing twinning relationships, which are extremely important for attracting Japanese business.

We will be glad to see the townspeople and guests of the city of Saratov at the opening ceremony of the Festival, at our film screenings, master classes, exhibitions, lectures. Admission to all events of the Festival is free.
