In addition, teams are organized by certain themes, and symposiums and lectures are held according to these themes so that members can acquire new knowledge. During their stay of about two weeks in Japan, participants deepen their understanding of employment stability policies in Japan and also experience Japanese culture and lifestyle. The program seeks to give them a realistic picture of life in Japan. []
