Greetings from principal

On this occasion,ICPA Int'Protocol Co., Ltd.Is the World's Protocol Executive GroupLeading Etiquette & Protocol Schools of the WorldBecame the only member of Japan.

here,thatAs the principal of the school, I would like to introduce myself and the process leading up to the establishment of this school.

I grew up in Yamate, Yokohama, an international city in Japan, and have lived surrounded by people from all over the world.My parents lived in Germany and other places and had a lot of international experience.Also, the Yamate district has been a very international region since the Meiji era, and probably because of this, my family lived mainly surrounded by Western culture.My big aunt is the director of a private kindergarten attached to the Catholic Church in Yokohama.40Dedicated most of his life for over a year, his rigorous educational style has been passed down to my family.

From an early age, I had a dream of "I wish the world was one."When I was a student, I was skeptical about the Japanese education system, especially English education at school, and I had a tutor.I felt a sense of mission and had a strong ambition to "see the world."

Since I became an adult, I have jumped out into the world and experienced various things.

It was very disappointing that people couldn't interact with each other beyond the language and cultural barriers, but I continued to believe that there must be a solution.

Even if the country changes, people are people, so if we understand each other, recognize each other, and truly coexist on the earth, we have come to think that we can build a better world.

As a result of accumulating various international experiences and sensibilities, studying and researching, I found the "key" and truly ""Cross-CultureHas begun to be introduced in Japanese.

I am truly proud to be able to offer such a unique program along with my own research results.

Different countries and cultures have different ways of thinking, but the emotions that remain in human hearts remain the same.Acquiring cross-cultural communication skills is a very important international ability, but at the same time it gives confidence, dreams and hopes at the individual level and makes life shine in the true sense of the word.

We will work and guide in good faith to spread the wonders of this learning in Japan and make Japan a more world-recognized country.

In addition, international culture will convey Japanese culture to Japan and the world together with the world's best partners.

We sincerely hope that our students will lead a deeper and more fruitful life based on these skills that will be useful throughout their lives.

I am waiting for the coming of everyone from the bottom of my heart.
