JENESYS 2.0: Social Community 9th Batch (Japanese Studies) Youth Exchange Programme (Thailand, Viet Nam)
7 July 2014
From 1 to 9 July, 55 high-school and university students from Thailand and Viet Nam are visiting Japan as part of a programme on the theme of “Japanese Studies” under JENESYS 2.0.
Participants first visited Tokyo to observe Japan’s traditional culture as well as pop culture, advanced technology, and to exchange views at a Japanese school. Then they will be divided into two groups to visit Kanagawa or Gunma Prefectures, where they will have an opportunity to learn about the region’s culture and history through cultural experience and homestay.
This programme is expected to enable youths from Thailand and Viet Nam to deepen their understanding of and interest in “Japan brand” and Japanese values including its strengths and attractions, and to disseminate their experiences in their respective countries.
