International Exchange Meeting
Dear International and Japanese students!

At this year’s International Exchange Meeting International Students will present their reports on the topic of “Japanese society and culture” about issues they found the most interesting to research about, and discuss them with Japanese students. Our discussion will not be limited to the issues touched on in the reports – if there is something in Japanese society and culture that you find interesting, let’s talk about it together! We would like this Meeting to be an opportunity to deeply think about Japanese society and culture not only for International but for Japanese students as well. We also hope it would foster mutual understanding between International and Japanese students and broaden human exchange network between them.
