Cebu Japan Festival (Cebu Nihon Matsuri) by ETHOS CORP

Cebu Nihon Matsuri ,ETHOS CORP
This event is a joint project of Ethics to Help Others Succeed (E-T-H-O-S) Corp., and the Cebu City Government, through the Mayor's Office. We are also hoping for recognition and coordination from the Japanese government, through the Japan Embassy-JICC (Japan Information Cultural Center) and the Japan Foundation.


To promote the Japanese culture and language in Metropolitan Cebu down to a grassroots level so that every individual might better understand the Japanese people and get to know more of their beautiful country and through this appreciation that every Cebuano person might also better appreciate his/her own culture and do more to help preserve it.

To promote closer ties between the Japan and Philippine governments and make people aware of the different friendship opportunities one can have.
 To provide a venue for the people of Cebu, particularly in the South, to witness a part of Japan first-hand considering that few Cebuanos have the chance to go to Japan to witness such events.

To better educate people, and especially graduating students from local universities, about the Japanese work ethic, and good working values in general, so that getting and keeping a job will be something important to them.

To gather people together for the purpose of relaxation and enjoyment, but also to provide them with possible employment opportunities through a Job Fair that will also take place. We plan to give people a venue to enjoy themselves, alleviate the effects of economic difficulties, and to better understand the Japanese spirit of "never give up" and "pressing on" communicated by the Japanese words ganbare, kaizen and banzai with the tradition of achieving success with quality.
