Isuzu Tanabata Festival

ISUZU Motors International FZE recently celebrated the traditional Japanese Tanabata Festival. This event not only highlighted the company’s respect for diverse cultures but also strengthened the bonds among its team members.

Tanabata, also known as the Star Festival, is rooted in a poignant Japanese legend about two celestial lovers, Orihime and Hikoboshi, who are allowed to meet just once a year. To honor this tradition, employees were invited to write their wishes on tanzaku papers, which they then hung on bamboo branches—a practice believed to bring good fortune.

The festival was a colorful affair, featuring decorations of vibrant streamers and origami that transformed the office into a festive Japanese streetscape.

One of the highlights of the celebration was the food. The company arranged for a selection of Japanese snacks like mochi, rice cracker, and matcha-flavored desserts, allowing employees to indulge in the rich culinary heritage of Japan.

Isuzu’s management team expressed their enthusiasm for such cultural events, noting that celebrating Tanabata within an international corporation like Isuzu Motors helps foster a deeper understanding and respect for the varied backgrounds of their global workforce.

This successful Tanabata festival marks just the beginning of Isuzu’s journey towards integrating more cultural celebrations into its annual calendar, aiming to enhance global harmony and employee engagement through cultural education and appreciation.
