Since 2010, Hiroshima University provides the "Japanese Language and Culture Special Program", which is designed to give students from our partner universities and institutions opportunities to learn Japanese language and culture and to deepen their understanding of Japan.
The Program consists of lectures on language, culture and present situation of Japan including many experience-based classes such as "Furoshiki and Japanese living" or "Origami culture". It features that the participants have plenty of opportunities to interact with Hiroshima University students throughout the program.
The Program will also teach the importance of peace through a lecture on Atomic bombing and a visit to A-bomb dorm and Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. The participants will get to know the city of Hiroshima by visiting such as Miyajima, a UNESCO world heritage site, Mazda (automobile) factory, one of the main industries in Hiroshima.
Japanese Language and Culture Special Program Winter Session was held between January and February in 2018.
