Toray Malaysia supports Penang Bon Odori Festival 2016

The 20th Penang State Bon Odori Festival was held on 16 July 2016. Despite the heavy rain downpour, some 20,000 people turned up at the Esplanade to enjoy the traditional Japanese summer festival. The annual cultural event is being co-organized by several organizations, namely the Penang State Government, Consulate-General of Japan in Penang and the Penang Japanese Association. As the key member of the Penang Japanese Association, Toray Malaysia is one of the sponsoring companies as well as strong supporter of the event yearly. In addition to Japanese traditional dance performance, there were over 50 stalls selling Japanese food, handicrafts and games, including “goldfish scooping” and “yo-yo fishing” games stalls which some Toray Group’s members helped in organizing and sales promotion. By participating in the memorable event of 20th anniversary, Toray Malaysia could help to foster closer cross-culture relationship and friendship between the people of both Penang and Japan.
