Today, 9 November 2020, is the 67th Independence Day in Cambodia. Cambodia used to be under the French colonial rule, until it gained its independence on 9 November 1953, following a successful Royal Crusade led by the late King Father Norodom Sihanouk. A Independence Monument was also built in 1958 in Phnom Penh to commemorate Independence Day.


Through here, we would like to express our warmest congratulations to the Royal Government and people of Cambodia on the occasion of Cambodia’s 67th Independence Day. We wish all Cambodian nationals good health and prosperity, and may the close bilateral ties between Cambodia and Japan continue to grow even stronger in the coming years.
