In this event, Waseda University’s international and Japanese students pair up to make a lesson together.
This program, in cooperation with Misato Junior High School is designed to improve cross-cultural understanding in the classroom.

The details about the lesson requirements will be explained by ICC staff members at an orientation meeting beforehand.
Afterwards, the pairs will prepare their lessons together themselves.

On the day, after the lessons everyone can go into town together for lunch.
After that you can try picking the famous and deliciously fresh Misato Blueberries as well as some other mixing activities.
