The Kumamoto Student Exchanges Promotion Conference held Welcome Party (Autumn)
On Saturday November 27th, 2021 Welcome Party (Autumn) for International Students in Kumamoto Prefecture was held online. The party was hosted by the Kumamoto Student Exchanges Promotion Conference which strives to familiarize newly arrived international students with Kumamoto and is carrying out various activities throughout the year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the international students still cannot enter Japan, so it was held remotely via Zoom this year. Around 60 international and Japanese university students joined the party.
This time student supporters prepared online quiz and bingo games about Japanese history and culture which helped most of the participants to deepen a relationship with each other.
Participants offered comments about the event, such as “I’m glad that I joined this event. I also appreciated the host for letting us stay a bit longer to have a free talk.” and “I hope that there will be more activities like this in the future!”
The Kumamoto Student Exchanges Promotion Conference will continue to provide International students, Japanese students and local residents with more opportunities for them to experience global interaction in the future.
