Due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the opening ceremony and speech sessions for the event were cancelled.

However, many Japanese dignitaries in politics and culture visited the exhibition, during which they filmed videos and created calligraphic work to show solidarity with China, especially people in Wuhan, epicenter of the outbreak.
