(Washington Office)



Our office hosted a booth at the Japan Week @ Bellevue College, where we promoted Hyogo tourism as well as Japanese culture by playing paper sumo.


For our office’s booth, intern students currently studying abroad at Seattle Central College created a display panel and exchange teachers from Hyogo attended as volunteers to promote famous Hyogo tourism destinations.

Many visitors and families of Japanese descent who created and played with paper Sumo with their children mentioned that it was very nostalgic.


* Japan Week is a college event held at Bellevue College centered around Japanese language instructors and students. Saturday was open to the public and had various events including booths from Japan related organizations, films, Japanese calligraphy, tea ceremony, martial arts and dance performances.
