The mail-magazine exclusive to members: THE HAMA CIR NEWS

We began publishing a monthly newsletter, "THE HAMA CIR NEWS", in English and Japanese, exclusively for HICE members.

The two Hamamatsu City Coordinators for International Relations (CIR) write about Japanese culture and customs and what they thought of Japan and Hamamatsu as well as about the culture and customs of their native countries. They also write reviews of books and movies etc.

The content is written both in English and Japanese, so that it may also be useful to those studying English. It's a great opportunity to have contact with native English!
