The Odisha Community of Japan together with their sponsors and patrons will celebrate the Ratha Yatra for the 11th year in a row. During the event, a 3-meter-tall chariot will be pulled by participants on a road near Kawasaki station. In addition to the chariot pulling, spectacular dance and plays will be performed during the parade and Prasad and dinner will be distributed afterwards. Celebrating commonality between Japanese and Indian culture, the event will be a fantastic way to learn about both cultures together!
