From December 9 to 25, 2012, two doctoral programme students who are Ms. Wenting Ma and Ms. Wenyuan Wang in Tongji University (China), one of our overseas partners, came and studied at OIT. They are studying Japanese classical literature at Tongji University. Therefore they received lectures about Japanese classical literature and theater. Besides Japanese classical literature and theater, they learned about recent Japanese economics and industries. During their stay in OIT, they didn’t only take lectures but also they collected their research materials at OIT’s library and museums in Kyoto and Nara prefecture where are the oldest historical area in Japan.
Moreover, they took tea ceremony lessons and visited Japanese family. These experiences gave them a chance to know Japanese tradition and culture directly.
We expect that two exchange students from Tongji University will become a bridge between China and Japan in the future.
