On February 18, 2020 the Global Learning Center welcomed 49 students from three Canadian universities (University of Toronto, University of Ottawa, and Carleton University) as part of a KAKEHASHI Project exchange program for promoting understanding of Japan run by the Japan International Cooperation Center. The exchange program was implemented by 14 Tohoku University students. In the morning, the visitors divided into small groups and went on campus tours, conducted in English by the TU students. After lunch, the TU students gave presentations on Japanese culture in pairs and answered questions. Through these activities the participating students were able to actively engage with each other. The TU students in this exchange program are scheduled to visit Canada in March. We hope that this project will create deeper ties between Japan and Canada, creating a bridge between the two countries.
