A home away from home

From Friday 18. to Sunday 20. December, MIRAI program participants spread out to various parts of Japan to experience how life is in more rural areas of Japan. When we all met on Sunday evening – the room was filled with smiles, tiered faces and good stories. Participants found a second home in the hospitality and warmth of Japanese families.
