Accepting students as a host family

The population of international students in Oita prefecture is the second largest international metropolis in Japan after Tokyo. In order to stimulate this environment at APU, students and members of the local community wish to forge true international exchange such as "understanding each other's cultural differences". How about providing a great opportunity for international students studying at APU to get in touch with Japanese culture and customs through the home stay program? We ourselves may even learn something we didn't yet know about the world.
