Japan Foundation ASIA CENTER
The Japan Foundation is Japan's principal institution dedicated to carrying out comprehensive international cultural exchange programs throughout the world. The Asia Center, established within the Japan Foundation in April 2014, is a specialized unit with the goal to connect people, expand networks, and develop cultural programs across Asia. As the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics lie ahead in 2020, through projects in such diverse fields as music, theater, film, sports, Japanese language education and other academic exchanges, the Asia Center, in cooperation with the Foundation's overseas offices, pursues and supports various forms of activities between Asian communities.
"NIHONGO Partners" are those who are dispatched to secondary educational institutions mainly in Asia by the Japan Foundation Asia Center in order to support local Japanese language teachers and students. "NIHONGO Partners" deepen their understandings toward the language and culture of the area or country where they stay, and serve as the bridge between Japan and Asia in the future. So why don't you be "NIHONGO Partners" ?
