The celebration was held by the Japan Kurdish Cultural Association, composed primarily of ethnic Kurds with Turkish nationality living in the prefectural city of Kawaguchi, and the Japan-Kurdistan Friendship Association. Around 1,500 people participated in the event, where women wore costumes embroidered in bright reds, greens and yellows. (Mainichi)
