The Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, is a very busy person of late. He’s been on a European tour lately going to Germany, UK, Portugal, Spain, France and Belgium. While he was in the area, he went past Paris to take a look at the “Evangelion and Japanese Swords” exhibition which is taking place at the Maison de la culture du Japon a Paris.
The exhibition showcases different Japanese swords inspired by the world of Neon Genesis Evangelion. The Prime Minister had the following to say about the event.
“Anime is very popular in France. Utilizing Japan’s strengths will help the growing of the economy. A collaboration between a modern anime and a traditional swordsmanship is one of the new ways to promote ‘Cool Japan’ to the world.”
