Subtitled "Viet Nam - Japan: Hand in Hand," the festival stressed the increasingly cooperative relationship forming between Japan and Vietnam in terms of trade, tourism and personal-level exchanges.

The two major sponsors were Japan's NEC and Vietnam Airlines. Almost 90 booths filled Yoyogi Event Space, just across the road from Yoyogi Park. Most were for food, but there was fine arts, handicrafts, educational institutes, and even a language booth giving free lessons for passersby in the basics of the Vietnamese language.

 The performance stage was a constant kaleidoscope of sound and color as acts from both Japan and Vietnam performed for a crowd of thousands. The biggest act was Vietnam's Anh Khoa, a rock artist the fans came flocking to the moment he appeared on stage.
