Icelandic Culture and Language

Iceland is an island with volcanoes and glaciers. Adjacent to Arctic Circle and spirited with independence, the grammatical construction of the Icelandic Language has remained unchanged for 1000 years. Represented by sagas, Icelandic literature has been passed down to present day, and Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland where it is in literary culture, has been designated the City of Literature by UNESCO.

A special seminar will be held to introduce and discuss Icelandic culture and language with the Rector of Iceland University, as well as professors and researchers from Iceland University, Tokai University and Waseda University.
