2014-7-2

On June 20, the University of Tokushima welcomed 24 Singaporean university students as part of the JENESYS 2.0 youth exchange program.

The aim of this program is to invigorate Japan’s economy by encouraging the latent interest in Japan and increasing the number of foreign nationals who visit Japan. It also aims to promote international understanding of the strength and attraction of the Japan brand and value.

After a courtesy appearance by the President at the Nichia Kaikan and an introduction to the University of Tokushima, the students took part in an exchange of opinion with the Japanese students, followed by a tour of the campus and a meal with the students. Afterwards, there were demonstrations and experiments in the various Faculty of Engineering laboratories. Then local people from the community support organization dressed the students in kimonos in the Josanjima Keyaki Hall and gave a talk on the history of the kimono, providing many opportunities for interaction.
