On April 28th the journey continued as TKU’s representative group travelled to The Japan Institute of International Affairs and Tokyo’s MBA Lib to research information to support their understanding of the relationship of national security between Japan and America. Afterwards, they had a sit in at the House of Representatives in Japan. The group then returned to Taiwan for a dinner with TKU Alumni and Japanese Ambassador in Taiwan, Can-xu Ren and Deputy Ambassador Rui-hu Xu. Gao-cheng Wang expressed, “This is the second time that the College of International Affairs has taken on an international exchange such as this one. It’s clear that Waseda University is not just a sister school, but an excellent symbol of a thriving modern Japan. On this exchange we were able to attain a wealth of invaluable knowledge.”
