  • 6 years ago
Representatives of three East Asian cities have gathered in Daegu, Gyeongsangbuk-do Province for a culture-sharing event.
From Daegu, Korea; Changsha, China and Kyoto, Japan, they're presenting the wrapping cloths of their cultures,... used for carrying things like gifts.
In Korean, they're called Bojagi.
Here's the mayor of Daegu explaining the event.

"The festival has the three cities sharing performances and events, centering on the 'bojagi' culture that each has in a similar but different way. Together we can appreciate the excellence of East Asian culture as we share and come to understand cultural diversity."

The four-day festival is being held at the Daegu Samsung Creative Campus, and offers hands-on experiences and cultural performances.
