One of the important events of the Japan-India Friendship Year is a PHOTO EXHIBITION ON JAPAN-INDIA RELATIONS in New Delhi, from 22nd to 27th February 2008.

Japan and India have been enjoying friendly relations for centuries. The photos selected for this exhibition provide a glimpse of some of the rarest moments of our bilateral relations – political, economic, cultural, etc. – captured in camera in the modern era. For example, Prime Minister Kishi’s visit to India, Prime Minister Nehru’s gift of an elephant Indira to the Japanese children, the visit to India by the then Crown Prince and Princess Akihito (present Emperor and Empress Akihito), and several others.

It is hoped that watching these photographs may help in refreshing and renewing the understanding of the Japan-India relationship amongst viewers.
As you are aware, the year 2007 is being celebrated as the “Japan-India Friendship Year” with the primary aim of expanding on people-to-people exchange, and to deepen the mutual understanding between Japan and India. As part of the ‘Japan Year in India’, almost 250 Japanese cultural events have been lined up in different cities of India during the year 2007 until 31 March 2008, to highlight the historical and cultural interchange between our two countries.
