150 Years of diplomatic relations between Spain and Japan

The “Mediterranean Samurais” project was created to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Spain and Japan.

This is a celebration that has been organized by the Japanese embassy in Spain and the Spanish government to commemorate the signing of the Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation between Japan and Spain on November 12, 1868.

This initiative aims to strengthen and further deepen the relationship between Japan and Spain, and is carried out in our country by a dedicated committee that will promote a wide variety of commemorative events.

HJAPÓN has also humbly taking part in this anniversary by creating this microsite, producing and participating in the documentary “The Footprints of the Samurai”, and organizing the traveling Hasekura exhibition.

We invite you to learn more about this magnificent initiative on the corresponding website:
