Japan Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea and Cake Contest
This year marks Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 70th anniversary on the throne, making her the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. This is a milestone, an inspiring example of public service and a happy occasion for people in the UK and around the world to celebrate. Across the UK there will be plenty of celebrations taking place throughout this year, with a special series of events centered around the central Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend from June 3-6. During Her Majesty’s 70-year reign, the Japanese Royal and Imperial Families have enjoyed a close relationship and the wider partnership between the UK and Japan has grown stronger in a wide range of areas; from cultural and educational exchanges to trade and investment ties, and from defense and security cooperation to joint action against climate change. The British Embassy in Tokyo and the British Consulate General in Osaka would therefore like to bring the Platinum Jubilee celebrations to Japan and invite you to be a part of it.
