A glimpse of Expo 2005 Aichi, Japan

In the six months from March 25 to September 25, 121 countries and regions and four international organizations participated in the expo, and nearly 1,000 performances, activities, seminars and symposiums were held there. The Aichi Expo not only displayed the latest in technology, but also the finest examples of ancient civilizations and traditions from across the globe. It integrated ancient civilizations with modern technologies, showing the elegance of nations with long histories as well as the vitality of modern cities.

Invited by China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, China Red Sandalwood Museum participated in the Expo and took charge of the work in arranging the exhibition on the Red Sandalwood Study in the Chinese Pavilion. The Red Sandalwood Study, based on a traditional Chinese study, served as a place for the exhibition of precious red sandalwood furniture that were models of rare collection in the Palace Museum of China and elaborately carved by famous craftsmen. Chinese calligraphy on the walls of the study helped create an atmosphere typical of classical Chinese studies, and filled the study with a scholarly atmosphere. The Red Sandalwood Study displayed traditional Chinese furniture culture, while also serving as a VIP room in the Chinese Pavilion welcoming guests from all over the world.

Accompanied by Dr. Chan Laiwa, Wu Yi, the then Vice Premier of China, and Ryutaro Hashimoto, the former Premier of Japan, pay a visit to the Red Sandalwood Study.

A grand opening ceremony for the Chinese Pavilion was held on May 19. Dr. Chan Laiwa herself received a large number of distinguished guests including Wu Yi, Vice Premier of the People's Republic of China, and Ryutaro Hashimoto, former Premier of Japan, who were all amazed by the beauty of Chinese red sandalwood art.
