The party was sponsored by The Kumamoto Foreign Student Exchange Promotion Regional Conference, which strives to welcome and familiarize newly arrived international students with Kumamoto.
Around 200 international and Japanese university students attended the party. Six international students gave words of greeting as representatives of their universities, and a performance was held by Higo Magma, a performing group with student membership from several universities around Kumamoto prefecture.
