Participants’ Voice:

  • ・I've gained some new knowledge and got to know many people who have a strong passion in sport. (Exchanging experience and knowledge)
  • ・The seminar helped me to understand the Asian sports system, understand the impact of Japanese culture in sports' values education. The Home-stay experience was a unique element of this program, it really helped me to understand a lot about the daily Japanese routine and see that despite the language barriers, if there is good will and understanding everyone can have fun and interact. I made so many international friends thanks. I'm sure I will collaborate in the future.
  • ・The content and program structure may be useful as I attempt craft a sports management program in my home county. Also, much partnerships can be made because of NIFISA (with Japan and other countries).
