Okurayama International Students Forum

(Exchange Event with Harvard University)


Every year, Yokohama City University students participate in the Okurayama International Student Forum held at Okurayama Memorial Hall in Yokohama. Sponsored by the Reishauer Institute at Harvard University and the Yoko Okura Project Team, this annual event aims to promote cultural exchange between the United States and Japan, bringing together students from Harvard University and three universities in Japan; namely Tokyo Institute of Technology, Keio University, and Yokohama City University. The participating students represent a variety of academic disciplines, and through various lectures, presentations and workshops, they are introduced to elements of both traditional and modern Japanese art and culture.
