Culture City of East Asia 2015 Niigata - Closing Event
We presented the event for the grand finale of "Niigata, Culture City of East Asia 2015". We presented mainly cultural events and exchanges between Niigata, Qingdao and Cheongju over the last year. Many entertainment groups proudly representing Niigata appeared on the stage performing distinctive acts. They never lost the audience's attention using the magic of "Genuine Niigata Culture." Sachiko Kobayashi, the Cultural Goodwill Ambassador and Negicco introduced their superb performances. Chinese and South Korean entertaiment groups livened it up with their sophisticated traditional techniques and texture of sounds. Thanks to all perofromers, we could wrap up the year-long project.
According to the research by questionnaire, more than 90 percent of the audience commented, "they are very satisfied with the event" or "staisfied with it." We had a lot of positive feedback: for example, "every single performance was soulfull as well as superb"; "It was interesting to find the difference among Japanese, Chinese and South Korean cultures and the uniqueness of each"; and "I enjoyed rediscovering the richness and depth of Niigata culture." Based on a number of positive feedback, we can say that the event became a successful opportunity to let Niigata people learn about three cultures, as well as to become fond of and proud of their own local culture.
