Online Seminar Series "Asia Center TERAKOYA"

Japan

As the coronavirus spread across the globe in 2020, interaction among people has been restricted and continuing international projects became a struggle for many. The Japan Foundation Asia Center also faces challenges in continuing projects that were implemented to connect people beyond national borders. In times like this, the Asia Center has started the online seminar series "Asia Center TERAKOYA" to create a new platform for people in Asia to connect through culture, language, and dialogue.
