Day 3 – Q3: How long has the festival been going? Who started it?
Reply: It is the 3rd year of the event. But it is 2nd year since we fixed the name as Tokyo Vegetarian Week Festival (TVWF). The TVWF Secretariat which I represent started the event.
That the word Festival joins “Japan Vegetarian Week” has been advocated by Japan Vegetarian Society (JPVS) which is a member of International Vegetarian Union. I also planned the outline of “Japan Vegetarian Week” in 2003.
