I have been using the Kokusai Hiroba for about 2 years now. I first came here to study, but I began to make friends and now I enjoy spending time with them here. Since coming to the Kokusai Hiroba I have made friends with people from many different countries.

I come to the International Student Support Center for consultation about living in Fukuoka, and for exchanging information with other overseas students and Japanese people too. I also helped with an event at the Kokusai Hiroba to let the people of Fukuoka know more about Africa!

I have been using the Kokusai Hiroba for about 11 years. When I first came I used it for studying Japanese, to find information about university and to talk to counselors about work. Now I am registered as a teacher for the Project for the Promotion of International Understanding Education, and I am trying to pay back the kindness that the people of Fukuoka have shown me. In the future I want to help promote friendship exchange between Japan and China.
