Warm weather ahead! Eagerly welcoming the sunny days with a new issue of Face To Face!
In this issue, we focus on Nagai City in Okitama Region in "Yamagata In Focus". Nagai City has put in a lot of effort to promoting kendama culture in their city, so we Coordiators of International Relations (CIRs) went to better understand the hype.
For "International Insights", our very own prefectural CIR, Alice French wrote about her experiences in Yamagata and reflected on the adventrues of Isabella Bird!
For the "Counselling Corner", there is information about the COVID-19 vaccine in regards to foreigners in Japan as well as a simple guide to utilizing our Consultation Service for Businesses!
You can download the current issue by clicking on the image above or find past issues of our newsletter here!
We publish Face to Face three times a year. Each newsletter includes an exploration of a specific part of Yamagata, various voices and opinions from other foreigners living in Yamagata, as well as some tips and advice from our counselling corner.
We're always looking for writers for our International Insights section so feel free to contact us if you're interested!
