Japanese Manner and Rules for Everyday Life (May 21)
34 people participated in the first installment of this year’s
social work training seminar, which had the theme of “Japanese
Manner and Rules for Everyday Life”. The first part of this
event was a lecture by Hamamatsu Central Police Station Community
Safety Section Chief Mr. Yoshiyuki Matsuda, who spoke about
precautions regarding unfair business practices and street crime. In
the second part, Hamamatsu Police Department Chief Ms. Tomoko
Johnston spoke about things that foreigners living in Japan should
know and trouble that arises due to differences in common practice.
The seminar was a great success as participants were able to receive
advice from police representatives, which is something they normally
will not be able to do.
