JENESYS 2.0: Social Community youth exchange, 18th batch (Thailand)
19 September 2014
From 18 to 25 September, about 15 university students from Thailand are visiting Japan as part of a programme on the theme of “Social Community” under JENESYS 2.0.
Participants first visited Tokyo to observe history- and culture-related facilities and Japan’s advanced technology. Then they will visit Ishikawa Prefecture, where they will have a first-hand experience with the highly acclaimed “Cool Japan”. They will have the opportunity to feel the attractions of the region on various aspects through a visit to a local government and popular sights, having cultural experiences as well as exchanging views at a local school.
Through this exchange programme, the youths from Thailand are expected to deepen their understanding of and interest in the “Japan brand” and Japanese values including its strengths and attractions, and to actively disseminate their experiences in their country.
