‘Our Japan: Bucharest students’ views’

Romania

+++++++

In April 2013, we visited Department of Japanese Language and Literature, University of Bucharest, to screen ‘Our friends in Fukushima‘ at its Michi-Biraki Festival.  In addition, we had a workshop with the second-year students. To our surprise and delight, the workshop ran for two hours entirely in Japanese.

In April 2014, we visited the Department again to screen ‘100 Bq/Kg, 0.23 μSv/h: The standard of living in Fukushima’ at the Michi-Biraki Festival and to carry out interviews with eighty students in Japanese about their favourite Japanese words. They expressed their views in Japanese.
