STUDENTS of Ratu Sukuna Memorial School were treated to a much needed stress buster on Friday as a Japanese ensemble brought cheer and laughter with their traditional drumming performances.
The Melbourne-based group was welcomed by the students and teachers.
Principal Filimone Vatuvoka said the performance brought attention to the importance of different cultures.
"We really appreciate them coming over to the school and their timing was most appropriate because our Form Six and Seven students have just finished their annual exams, so it's a good break for them," Mr Vatuvoka said.
"It's a great cultural teaching for our students and teachers too. We learn a little bit about Japanese culture and it's something new, we've never seen this before."
The group, known as "WADAIKO RINDO" performed traditional Japanese drum routines.
They also performed at the USP's theatre space and Veiuto Primary School.
The event was organised by the Japanese Embassy to strengthen cultural ties between Fiji and Japan.
