Indiana State Fair

This year the fair has a Japan Pavilion called "Bridges to Japan" and many Japan-related performances and exhibits. JNTO will have a booth from August 6th to 9th and there will be a sweepstakes to win $1,000 discount air tiket!

The new "Bridges to Japan" exhibit in the International Pavilion, also known as the Grand Hall, will show Indiana State Fair visitors what the Japanese culture is all about, as well as the many connections between the state and Japan.

The exhibits feature traditional Japanese customs like tea ceremonies, Japanese calligraphy, sumo wrestling, and a myriad of music and dance performances.
Once inside "Bridges to Japan," guests will be able to pass through a bamboo forest and garden or cross over a koi pond on a traditional Japanese bridge. Japanese architectural styles will be readily apparent with a traditional inn featuring tatami mats and a Japanese stage.
