JICA ex-volunteers are bridges connecting both cultures.

In Tokyo at the "Café George" JICA ex-volunteers have organized the event to introduce Kyrgyz culture.

Guests of the event learned about Kyrgyz Republic from exhibitions of photos, felt products and magazines, also from talking with ex-volunteers.

Bread and borsok were cooked for the guests and served with dried fruits, nuts and jam.

Special program of the event was performance of komuz. Guests liked the timbre as well as the virtuosity of play - changing position of komuz and handling during playing.

In talks about Kyrgyz, ex-volunteers shared with their warm memories about daily life in Kyrgyz Republic and presented culture, customs and traditions of Kyrgyz.

Here are some guests' impressions about Kyrgyz Republic: "I would like to go to Kyrgyz Republic", "I tasted kyrgyz food for the first time, and it was tasty", "I got interested in Kyrgyz and Central Asia", "I would like to listen more performance on Komuz", "Kyrgyz nature is so beautiful".

Despite that Kyrgyz Republic and Japan are far apart for thousands of kilometers, with help of ex-volunteers more people got interested in Kyrgyz Republic and knew about enjoyable life and culture that they have experienced here.
