The Splendor of the Royal Alcázar of Seville

The 400th anniversary concert of Keicho's envoy from Spain to Japan was a success!

Four centuries have passed since Date Masamune dispatched an envoy to Spain.

In honor of this historic occasion, the "Japan-Spain Cultural Exchange Project: Haiku and Chorus" was meticulously organized.

Serving as the second phase of the project, choral concerts and haiku exchange events took place from April 29 to May 3 at the esteemed Alcázar Palace in Seville, as well as in the picturesque city of Coria del Río.
