Hello, I am Tsukasa Hamaguchi. I started working at the Center for International Affairs in June 2016. Earlier in my life, when studying a language abroad, I found that I could directly experience cultural diversity. I learned that things could be seen from various angles, and I consider such hands-on experiences to be extremely valuable. The Center hosts events at which international and Japanese students can mingle, and also provides various other opportunities to facilitate international exchange on campus. Please come and see us!
