The Experience Japan Program has been launched to promote interaction between Japanese and international students. This program will provide you with opportunities to experience "Japan" through activities arranged by local Kansai Gaidai students. This student-organized program will not only give you a chance to learn about aspects of Japanese culture, but also to meet local students who are very enthusiastic about getting to know you.

The activities are roughly divided into the following four major categories: day trips, cooking, sports, and cultural activities. The following are some sample activities:

Day trips to Kyoto, Nara, Osaka
Preparing traditional and/ or popular foods, such as Takoyaki and Sushi
Playing basketball and playing Japanese games
Learning calligraphy, putting on a Kimono, playing with children

The semester schedule and monthly invitations will be posted on the "Experience Japan Program" bulletin board located above the International Students' Mailboxes in the CIE building. Please make sure to sign up for activities you are interested in before the deadline date. Sign-up is available at the Center for International Education.

Do not miss this chance to make your stay at Kansai Gaidai more enjoyable. If you are interested in organizing your own activities, please contact the staff members of the CIE. We are open to your unique ideas!
