KIZUNA Project 2012

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan offered the opportunity for Australian and New Zealand students to travel to Japan for 10 days, 9th December to 18th of December 2012, in order to experience Japan’s current situation and its culture. The project was introduced as part of the recovery plan of Japan after the 2011 earthquake disaster.
