Features of the Hamamatsu Foreign Resident Study Support Center
As a city with the most Brazilian residents in Japan, the Center strives to be a place that offers general educational support for foreign residents of all ages.
Acting as a base, the Center dispatches Japanese language teachers to international schools in Hamamatsu, and with the cooperation of the foreign community, conducts a number of Japanese classes throughout the area.
In cooperation with the Hamamatsu Multicultural Center that opened in 2008 (10 minutes walk from the Hamamatsu Station’s north exit), the Center works to promote Hamamatsu as a multicultural city making it its unique feature.

With the cooperation of the citizens of Hamamatsu, the city has established the following classes:
