We held a Christmas party with Japanese students and international students together on Sunday, December 15.
The party was held at Pelican cafeteria, and participants were two students currently having training at Ube Kosen from Taiwan National United University and the MARA University of Technology, Kosen long-term international students, international students from Faculty of Engineering of Yamaguchi University and Graduate School, and students who were involved actively in the international activities from Ube Kosen, Ube High-school, Keishin High-school, Baiko Gakuin. We had Takoyaki and hot pots which Japanese students staff prepared, and international students prepared their national dishes this time. We prepared fish meats and processed chickens in Halal for Muslim students so that they could eat too. It was a good opportunity to learn Halal meals with this exchange activity.

International students were from Djibouti, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Bangladesh, Malaysia and so on. We had not only Japanese dishes, but other country’s dishes as well, and some international students performed their traditional dance on the day. At the end of the party, we did a bingo game, exchanged gifts that all students brought in, and took a group picture for the memory. It would be nice to plan to have more opportunities to meet international students from various countries at Ube Kosen.
