Words of the director<br>
"I hope the world will become one"

"I wish the people of the world were one" Such a childhood dream<br>
I want you to see the big and small world

I grew up in the international city of Yamate, Yokohama, and lived surrounded by foreigners. My parents lived in Germany, and the area of Yamate was a very gorgeous area even during the civilization of the Meiji era, and for that reason, my life was centered on Western culture. The great aunt contributed for more than 40 years as the director of a private kindergarten attached to the Catholic Church, and his rigorous education was passed on to the family.

In a life where there were many foreigners, I had a dream from an early age that “I wish the world became one”, and when I was a student, I had doubts about the Japanese education system, especially English at school. I had doubts about education and had a tutor. I have to see the world. ”I felt a sense of mission without such a reason.

I went out to the world as if I was invited, and had various experiences. From various international experiences, it seemed very sad that the wall of language, the wall of culture, and people passing each other by themselves, but beyond the “wall of language”, “differences in senses and emotions due to culture” I was convinced that there was something to solve the “difference, difference in thinking”. Even if the country changes, “people” are people, so I believed that if we could understand and acknowledge each other and truly coexist on the earth, we could create a better world.

After accumulating various international experiences and sensibilities, studying, researching and experiencing, he found the “answer” and became the first person in Japan to raise the definition of cross-culture. However, the current Japanese society has a human view that is far from internationalization, and I feel that “internationalization” in the original sense has not been achieved.

I am truly proud to be able to offer this course together with my own research results. Different countries and cultures have different feelings, but the emotions that remain in the heart of human beings do not change. It is a very important international communication skill, and at the same time, it gives people confidence, dreams and hopes at the individual level, and makes life shine in the true sense of the word.

We will work in good faith and provide guidance so that we can spread the wonders of this learning in Japan and make Japan a more globally recognized country.We sincerely hope that all of our students will have a deeper and more wonderful life based on these skills that will be useful throughout their lives.

We sincerely look forward to welcoming you.
