Messages We traveled to Laos to conduct a teaching workshop for Laotian kindergarten teachers as one of our overseas educational support activities,  and supported the construction of the kindergarten model in Vientiane in 2006.
As for the Japanese language classes, we help foreigners with their daily conversation,  their preparation for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test and so on.
We hope to gather and spread our grassroots international exchange through our activities such as flower arrangement classes,  cooking cultural exchange and so on.
