Japan Stall at UNOG’s Annual International Bazaar 2019 (3 December 2019)


 The International Bazaar at the United Nations Office at Geneva is an annual event organized by the United Nations Women’s Guild in Geneva, with the participation of some 70 Permanent Missions. On 3 December, the Permanent Mission of Japan again joined this year’s event and prepared a national booth and restaurant stall for the occasion.

Japanese Mission’s booth

 The Japan booth provided visitors with a taste of Japanese culture by showcasing a variety of Japanese food and drinks. These included bento (Japanese-style boxed lunch) decorated with origami, sushi, green tea flavored “melon pan” bread, “an pan” bread (with sweet bean filling), and dorayaki (sweet bean pancakes), as well as bottles of green tea.

 There was a steady stream of visitors to the Japan booth and all of the items on offer were sold out before the end of the event.

 The proceeds from the bazaar will be contributed through UNWG to projects in support of children in developing countries.
