The Termez Archaeological Museum held an exhibition about the work of Kato Kyuzo, a Japanese professor and prolific author, who loved the Uzbek people and Uzbekistan, calling it his second Homeland.
Termez was chosen as the right venue because of its past role as a city on the western borders of Buddhism and the centre of Bactria.
It is also home to many Buddhist cities, like Dalverzintepa, Karatepa, Khalchayan, and Fayaztepa.
The exhibition opened with public authorities, Termez University teachers, and RISSHO University specialists, including Haruki Yasudo, Sachiyo Shimizu, Atsushi Iwamoto и Toshiya Matsuyi.
Members said they wished universities specialising in studies on Buddhism, the Great Silk Road, culture and art strengthened their cooperation.
They also said they would like to see more Japanese tourists visit Uzbekistan.
The exhibition will help promote the care for historical legacy and raise awareness among the Japanese about this region’s history.
