First statue of Ho Chi Minh in Japan presented to Mimasaka city
This is the first Ho Chi Minh statue in Japan.

A statue of Vietnam’s late President Ho Chi Minh was presented to Mimasaka city of Japan’s Okayama prefecture on November 21.

On behalf of the Party and State leaders of Vietnam, Chairman of the Vietnamese President Office Đào Việt Trung presented the statue, which depicts Ho Chi Minh reading the newspaper, to representatives of the Mimasaka administration and people.

The first Ho Chi Minh statue in Japan was presented when the two countries are preparing to celebrate the 45th founding anniversary of their diplomatic ties in 2018.

Aside from the statue presentation, the “Vietnam – Ho Chi Minh Space” was also inaugurated at the Mimasaka City Museum.

Chairman of the President Office Đào Việt Trung said the statue of Ho Chi Minh is a symbol of the two countries’ friendship and extensive strategic partnership for peace and prosperity in Asia.

He also values the Mimasaka Mayor and people’s sentiment towards the late President, acknowledging the cooperation between the city and its people and Vietnam’s relevant agencies in installing the statue and opening the space.

Mayor Hajiwara Seiji said on behalf of the city’s administration and people, he had sent a letter to the Vietnamese Prime Minister to express their wish to have a statue of Vietnam’s beloved leader Ho Chi Minh, who is admired by Japanese people.

Mimasaka is proud to be the first place in Japan to have a statue of the late President, he noted, voicing his belief that the statue and the Vietnam – Ho Chi Minh Space will help attract more Japanese and foreign tourists to the museum.
