    It was already the 8th sword forging competition organized by the Japanese Traditional Sword Association, but the first with the special award of the Ambassador of Poland presented to one of the winners.

    “Today’s event not only underlines friendly relations between Poland and Japan, but makes them ever stronger by shedding a light on a crucial element of our cultures common to our countries, which is a time-honoured tradition of sword”, said Ambassador Cyryl Kozaczewski in his speech during the award presentation ceremony, held at the Bizen Osafune Japanese Sword Museum.

    Poland was the only foreign country invited to take part in the event, which reflects potentially powerful appeal of traditional Polish culture and its attractiveness in Japan.
