On August 8, a group of high school principles from leading secondary schools in Japan visited the TKU Tamsui Campus. They took part in an informed discussion by Dr. Wan-chin Tai, the TKU Vice President for International Affairs. Subsequently, on Aug 10, they attended a banquet held by the TKU President and Chairperson of the Foundation for International Cooperation in Higher Education of Taiwan, Dr. Flora Chia-I Chang.

The visit was organized by the Taiwan Education Center in Japan. It involved a delegation made up of seven Japanese high school principles, including Yoshio Yamasaki (Waseda University Houjo Senior High School), Noboru Yajima (Showa Daiichi Gakuen High School), Noboru Fukasawa (Seisoku Gakuen High School), Nakata Hideo (Seijo Junior and Senior High School), Eiichi Honda (Obirin Junior and Senior High School), Mitsuaki Mashimo (Josai University Junior and Senior High School), and Katsumi Enomoto (Hosei University Daini Junior and Senior High School). Apart from touring Tamkang, the delegation also visited National Taiwan University and several Taiwanese private universities.

The Taiwan Education Center in Japan was established this year thanks to the joint efforts of the Ministry of Education and Tamkang University. Its purpose is to promote interaction between schools and universities in Taiwan and Japan; two regions that already enjoy close academic relations.
