To echo the Belt and Road Initiative, the province, in late 2017, rolled out a plan that aims to expand cultural ties with countries related to the national strategy by establishing a raft of culture demonstration centers. The facility in Tokyo is latest one.

Besides Japan, Fujian has also set up similar ones in countries including Malaysia, Philippines and Australia to date.

A coastal province in East China, Fujian has been actively involving in the construction of BRI and build itself into the core are of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

Fujian is the hometown of a large number of overseas Chinese. Statistics show that roughly 15 million overseas Chinese can trace their ancestral roots to the region, and more than 70 percent of them are living in Southeast Asian countries.

Fujian is giving full play to those advantages and promoting its traditional culture among that special group as well as the local residents.

The newly established center in Tokyo is composed of two pavilions, with one briefing the overview of Fujian and its culture and the other hosting activities such as exhibitions, forums and lectures. An exhibition featuring a selection of pictures of Fuzhou is currently underway in Tokyo, which depicts the capital city's historical evolution and development, as well as a collection of intangible cultural heritage items like stone carvings, tea sets and silverware.
