altOn 2 August, the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia in Japan hosted 80 elementary school children from Fujimi, in the context of cooperation with this twin city of Sabac. The pupils attended a presentation about Serbia in Japanese, which consisted of detailed explanations of the geographic position of Serbia, its history, culture and tradition, as well as of the renowned people from Serbia, including Nikola Tesla, whose bust exists on the Embassy premises.

Serbian Ambassador Nenad Glisic thanked for the hospitality offered by the citizens of Fujimi whenever he visited this city and expressed his hope that the pupils would soon have an opportunity to visit Serbia and the city of Sabac and experience for themselves the hospitality that Serbia is particularly famous for. He invited the pupils to also support Serbian athletes, along with the Japanese ones, during the 2020 Olympics.


The mayor of Fujimi, Mitsuhiro Hoshino, who also joined the pupils on this visit, expressed his satisfaction with the long tradition of cooperation with the city of Sabac, Serbia and the Serbian Embassy, and said that he hoped that the city would be chosen as the host of Serbian athletes within the Japanese government's initiative called "Host City", in the context of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. He reminded the pupils of the excellent cooperation between Serbia and Japan and mutual help offered by both countries at the most difficult times, including a recent donation by the Serbian Government to the Japanese Government following the floods that affected Western Japan in July.
