Japan hosted by Nihon Chukinto Africa Fujinkai.
Over 100 participants from Japan and African nation (Sudan Egypt, Algeria, Angola, Nigeria, Zambia, Cameroon, Guinea…) got together at the Angolan Embassy.
We were divided into 6 groups (by region), and discussed about the topic “the process and custom of marriage” for 2 hours.
Most of the Japanese participants had imagined that African men and women would take the old traditional-bound steps in their marriage.
They keep a balance of both styles by adjusting their culture.
We were strongly impressed that their wedding ceremony is very open to everyone like family, relatives, friends and village people, which means Africans value their relationship with others through the celebration of the ”Marriage”, and their deep bonds build a prosperous and stable society for all the people living together.
