We received this certificate of appreciation and recognition of the Embassy of Japan by our active participation in the planning and preparation of the "Spain-Japan Dual Year".
Between June 2013 and July 2014 Spain and Japan are doubly celebrating the year of Spain in Japan and the year of Japan in Spain to mark the 400th anniversary of the sending of the Keicho Embassy to Europe (Spain and Rome). Both are intended as a commemoration of 400 years of exchanges between Spain and Japan.
This mission, known as the 'Keicho Embassy to Europe', was headed by the Samurai Hasekura Tsunenaga (1570–1621). Currently you can see a statue of Hasekura Tsunenaga in "Coria del Rio" (Sevilla), where embassy settled.
The Keicho Embassy was the first official diplomatic mission sent to Spain by Japan and has gone down in history as an important event in bilateral Spain-Japan relations.
Below you can see the official video of this event.
The Andalusian GO Association try the divulgation of GO, a game regarded by the Japanese as one of the arts to cultivate and also teaches how to live.
We are based in La Carbonería, Céspedes Street 21A in the heart of the city of Seville. We meet on Saturdays at 19:30.
