Embassy of Japan to Lithuania and Vytautas Magnus University Centre for Asian Studies initiate the establishment of Japan Alumnae Association in the beginning of November this year. The aim of the association is to bring together all Lithuanian citizens who have experience of studies in Japan. It is expected that this organization will contribute to the cultivation of further interest in Japan, provide space for sharing experience and consulting people who plan to study in Japan. It is planned to organize at least one meeting of association members annually.

The official opening meeting of the association will take place on November 3 at 16:00 p.m. in the Historical Presidential Palace in Kaunas (Vilniaus str. 33). The meeting will be held during the international symposium “Japanology within Asian Studies in Lithuania: Historical Perspective and Present Situation”. The president of the association Mr. Rimantas Vaitkus and the honored adviser of the association ambassador of Japan H. E. Miyoko Akashi will participate during the meeting.
