This year, the Japanese Government will invite one more university student from The Netherlands to participate in the MIRAI (meaning ‘Future’ in Japanese) Program. This program is fully supported by the Japanese Government to (I) promote mutual-understanding, (II) enhance intellectual discussions and (III) build strong networks among future leaders of Japan and the world. It is a short-term youth exchange program to specially invite 200 graduate/undergraduate students from Europe, Russia, Central Asia and the Caucasus who study Politics, Economics, International Relations, Asian Studies, Japan Studies or other related fields. By doing so the program aims to foster a solid foundation for the relationship between Japan and countries in the aforementioned regions in the future.
