In just a few weeks, a new batch of MEXT scholars will be arriving in Japan. Just as in last year, we will be holding a set of welcome meetups throughout the whole of Japan in order to welcome them.

We wish that these events become chances for current scholars and alumni who have been in Japan for a while to welcome the new scholars, and for the former to perhaps share their knowledge and tips for living in Japan to those newly arrived.

Below is the set of welcome events which are being planned – more information will be delivered as our plans become more concrete. We want to know how many people are coming to each event so please sign up if you plan to attend!

For more updates please subscribe to our Facebook page and the members area group. If you are interested please also fill in the form at the end of the page if you are interested.

  1. Dear sir/madam,
    I received this email today. I was actually planning to take part in the Kyoto meetup. Unfortunately, it has already been held. However, I’m willing to take part in the next meetup. What can you recommend me? Further, I would like to know how can I keep in touch with future events. Please reply. Thank you very much.
