The event took place from Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning, and was sponsored by the Japanese Embassy in Lebanon. It was the third annual installment of what they call Japan Weekend, which aims to introduce Lebanese people living outside Beirut to Japanese culture. The guests were treated to an authentic taste of Japanese food by Mitsuteru Arai, a co-owner and head chef at Mitsuya in Beirut, who said he is one of only two Japanese chefs working in Lebanon.Gretta Noun, a Lebanese woman who heads cultural affairs at the embassy and oversaw the event, said she has become an accidental expert in Japanese culture.
