Students of Austin Peay State University visit Consul-General Kobayashi

On January 23rd, Consul General Kobayashi welcomed the professors and students of Austin Peay State University who participated in a faculty lead trip to Japan in May 2018. During their visits to Consul-General, the students shared their favorite memories from the three-week trip to Japan which included Tokyo, Kamakura, and Hiroshima. For the students, the highlights were their homestays as well as their visits to several elementary schools, high schools, and colleges. Many of the students went on to enroll in a Japanese language class upon their return to America, and they were still in contact with Japanese friends that they made during the trip. We hope that they will continue to build off of their positive experience in Japan and strengthen the relationship between U.S. and Japan.
