We at MISHOP carry out various types of exchange activities, from a small-scale, regular get-togethers to a big event such as the International Exchange Festival. Not only can you participate in such events, you can also involve yourself in planning and managing such projects. There are many opportunities available for international exchange here in Japan without having to go abroad. Why don’t you take your fi rst step with MISHOP?
In order to live together with foreign residents in our community, it is important to have correct understanding of the cultures of their countries and of their ethnic groups. Let us apply the mutual trust cultivated with foreign residents through international exchange programs toward a deeper understanding of existing cultural differences.
MISHOP organizes lectures by specialists, courses to learn languages and cultures, and children’s classes for multicultural understanding, so as to provide opportunities to broaden international viewpoints. Won’t you come and learn with us about topics that concern you?
