The Miyazaki International Plaza(April, 2009 )



     Spring in Japan, ripe with burgeoning cherry blossoms, is considered the season of encounters. Cherry blossoms are flowers that many Japanese adore. People head to parks to see the cherry blossoms and have parties under the cherry trees. These flowers are seen as symbols of spring, as well as the expectations and anxieties of new beginnings. Many foreigners have most likely gazed at the cherry blossoms in Japan while thinking of their own distant hometowns. The Miyazaki International Foundation provides a variety of support for foreign residents so that they can spend their time comfortably in Miyazaki. This month, we will introduce the Miyazaki Prefecture International Plaza, a part of the Miyazaki International Foundation.
