    I’m Japanese who runs WA COFFEE & GALLERY in Serpong, Tangerang, with a vision of establishing more intimate relationship between Indonesia and Japan.
    I sincerely sympathize with the program and mission of this academic culture camp to Kyoto & Osaka which will surely encourage students to broaden their horizon for the future.

    Wish the success of AYFN’s Japan culture camp!!
