At the completion of the meal and entertainment, the guests were invited to peruse a small bazaar set-up with booths in which local Afghan businesses in Japan displayed Afghan craft and art items such as rugs, scarves, Afghan traditional clothing, Afghanistan sourced precious stone jewelry items, award winning Afghan saffron, and dried Afghan fruits and nuts for them to view, and inquire further about. All those present had an enjoyable time and remarked at how impressed they were with their new introduction to the wonders of Afghanistan.
