On October 9th, "The 2nd Japan-Vietnam Friendship Music Festival~Kono Heiwa wo Yume mite~" which was proposed by singer/actor Sugi Ryotaro, was held at the Opera House in Hanoi, Vietnam. �This music festival was held to thank Vietnam for their support for the 2011 Tohoku�earthquake, and to celebrate the 100th year anniversary of the venue.

As reported back in August, �7 groups of artists, such as AKB48, Koda Kumi, and EXILE, attended the music festival.

The first up was AKB48, and they performed two songs. �A member, Takahashi Minami said to the audience, "If there would be our sister group here in Vietnam, would it be 'VTN48'? �Girls here are very pretty, so I would mention that to Akimoto-sensei (=Akimoto Yasushi)!" �She also said that the members enjoyed sightseeing during their free time.

Koda Kumi also�appeared, and showed her performance in sexy costume which was rare in Vietnam. �She greeted, "I would like to become a bridge between Japan and Vietnam.", and performed "Ai no Kotoba."

The last performer was the special ambassador for Japan and Vietnam, Sugi Ryotaro. �He performed "Bara-iro no Dance" with 50 orphans, and thanked people in Vietnam for their support.
