Events scheduled in Japan to mark ROC's 100th founding anniversary

Tokyo, April 4 (CNA) A series of activities will be held in Japan to celebrate the Republic of China's 100th founding anniversary next year, John Feng, Taiwan's top representative in Japan, said Sunday.
Feng said activities will be organized to commemorate the country's founding in Japan because the seeds of the 1911 Revolution, which led to the collapse of the Qing Dynasty and the establishment of the Republic of China, were planted in Japan by the nation's founding father, Dr. Sun Yat-sen.
He made the remarks in a speech delivered at the opening of the 44th clan meeting of the Chung Cheng Association in Tokyo, a Hakka group established in Japan in 1963.
About 400 people, including 12 legislators and an official in charge of Hakka affairs from Taiwan and a number of Japanese parliamentarians, attended the one-day meeting, which took place at a hotel in Tokyo.
