To those who want to study Japanese language !

MIEA provides a basic course of Japanese language for foreigners and introduces Japanese language courses operated by those other than MIEA upon request. If you want to show the progress you have made in the Japanese language, why don't you participate in the speech contest to speak about something such as your home country and what you have found interesting in Japan?

The best way to know more about Japanese and its culture !

The best way to know more about Japanese and its culture is to participate in various MIEA events such as a festival, a party, one day trip, etc. enjoyed together with Japanese people. You will learn positive and interesting things about Japan through active participation in these events.

Those who want to have friends from various countries !

You have a great opportunity to meet friends from many countries all over the world through MIEA events such as cooking classes and cultural salons. Make friends with and relax in the acquaintance of people from your own country and fellow foreigners at these events.

Those who want to introduce things about your country !

MIEA has the system of the " Matsudo International Cultural Ambassador". If you are appointed as ambassador, you have opportunities to introduce things of your country through school sessions and other lecture events.
