If you’re living in or near Mexico City and feel up to giving a little exploration of the cultures of other countries, the now-running FICA event (Friend Cultures International Fair in English) at the Zocalo is where Hatsune Miku fans can find an interesting bit of Japan pop culture. If you stop by booth #45 representing Japan, you’ll be able to find a miniaturized projection box on display, featuring Hatsune Miku performing various songs.
The music and videos on display have been provided by various Japanese and Mexican producers, and selection will be changed several times throughout the event. The display comes courtesy by collaboration between the Japanese Embassy and Anime Latam to promote aspects of Japanese pop culture, with Hatsune Miku of course being one of the highlight icons. And although it’s been in operation for only 1 day so far, the display has gathered quite a bit of attention.
FICA is a non profit cultural fair event that takes place in the heart of downtown Mexico City at the Zocalo. At the event, all countries which have any diplomatic relationship with Mexico are invited to participate. FICA will be open to the public until June 4th, and runs daily between the hours of 11:00 AM~8:00 PM. Stop by if you have the chance!
