Namaste Fukuoka is a “nonprofit organization”

About Us

The Namaste Fukuoka is a “nonprofit organization” and volunteer organization, which exceedingly encouraged introducing diverse cultures of India to everyone in Japan. Fukuoka India Friendship Association (FIFA) organized the event first time in the year 2016. The number of Indian residents in Kyushu, Japan is not large yet, and there are few opportunities for residents to touch Indian culture. 


As you know India is one of the old culture and civilization in the world but why in Japan, India is known by curry or IT? So Namaste Fukuoka executive committee and FIFA have planned to hold the events in Fukuoka City, which call the gateway to Asia.


The motive of this Event is to provide a platform for Japanese and other foreigners in Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan to know the rich and diverse culture of India. At the same time, we want to increase the exchange between Japanese people, Indians and foreigners. It’s a great opportunity for Japanese people and foreigners to explore and feel about Indian culture and contribute to the further development of India-Japan friendship and mutual relations.Since April 2016 the event held at Tenjin Central Park in the center of Fukuoka city every year. 


We try to create different kind of opportunity to explore India in the event. We have many varieties of Indian cultural and Bollywood stage performance followed by some Japanese performance as well. The event has Indian food stalls, Indian accessories, Free Hena art and Sari wearing experience booth for visitors.
