Philippine-Japan Friendship Day turns 61

International relations is very important to all countries, especially in this age of globalization. The Philippines, being part of several international organizations such as ASEAN and APEC, has already forged a tie among the neighboring countries.

One of our allies is Japan. In line to this, the months of July and August were designated to commemorate the friendship of the country to Japan.

The City Government of Baguio and The Embassy of Japan and many other organizations including Japan Foundation, Japanese Association of Northern Luzon have hosted a schedule of events as part of the celebration.

One of the sponsors is our very own BESA School, Baguio Journey In my Career Academy.


The actual date for the Philippine-Japan Friendship Day was on July 23 at Japan Peace Memorial Garden, Governor Pack Road. It was opened at 9am in the morning with flowers and candlelight offerings.


There are coming events for this August so we can also enjoy and experience the Friendship Day. For the list of activities, please refer to the following table and pictures:
