It’s a front row seat to defining events such as the swearing in of the nation’s first President, the unveiling of the national flag and anthem as well as the chronicles of the building’s rich past. Further uncover the nation’s history through key artworks within the gallery as well as through an interactive digital wall.

JAPAN
14 & 15 Sep
KISHIWADA DANJIRI FESTIVAL
Japan’s most extravagant danjiri float (wooden float) festival takes place around Kishiwada Castle in Osaka, thrilling spectators with its display of portable shrines wheeled at fast pace through packed streets. It’s all exciting – and dangerous at the same time – with a man standing on top of each float as he is being wobbled around narrow corners. With over 500,000 visitors each year making their way to witness this, you don’t want to miss it if you’re in Osaka at the same time.
