Riyadh museum commemorates victims of Tohoku disaster


The Saudi National Museum commemorated the victims of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami by launching an exhibition titled “Beautiful Handicrafts in Tohoku, Japan”.




Hirofumi Miyake, interim Japanese chargé d’affaires in Riyadh, inaugurated the exhibition along with Abdullah Al-Zahrani, the museum’s director general.

Hirofumi said the exhibition affirms the strong relationship between the two countries, as well as their cooperation within the Saudi-Japanese Vision 2030 framework.

He thanked everyone who contributed to the exhibition, and expressed his interest in opening more of them to further strengthen Saudi-Japanese ties.

The attendees were given a tour of the exhibition, where they were introduced to Japanese art and craftwork, including wooden bowls, embroidery, dyeing, knitting, weaving baskets, pots, utensils, woodwork and ancient drawings

The exhibition marks the anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that hit the Japanese region of Tohoku.

Its traditions are presented throughout the exhibition, as a means of regaining what was lost due to the natural disasters.

The exhibition will run until Feb. 28 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. except for Fridays, when opening hours are 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., and Sundays, when opening hours are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
