(2016.04.01)Culture-exchange programs are waiting for you.
Spring being just around the corner, I suppose that each of foreign people residing in Inzai is also determined to make a fresh start for the new stage of life.
From the bottom of my heart, I wish that those would be adapting themselves to the surroundings and begin the pleasant living as soon as possible, and for that we, Inzai citizens, would extend any support and assistance to them without reserve, as well.
I further wish that our association would provide the students of schools in the city, who also have new term in spring, with any kind of opportunities to get more familiar and acquainted with people and things of foreign countries.
This year of 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of inauguration of the City of Inzai. As one of the commemorative programs, the city will send 20 junior high school students to Australia for a short term study. We hope that the program will be carried out with great success.
Our association would like to continue making even greater efforts to promote the international exchanges of culture and friendship in conjunction with our members and citizens.
Please feel free to join us.
