President NAGATA Kyosuke began by saying, “It is an honor for us to be able to conclude this agreement and hold the opening ceremony on this milestone occasion, which marks the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Peru. On behalf of our entire university, I would like to express our sincere and enthusiastic gratitude to all those who have given so much support to our university’s activities in Peru”. He also expressed his gratitude to all those involved for their generous support of the university’s activities in Peru. President Nagata stated, “We aim to attract more international students from Spanish-speaking countries, including Peru, and to provide opportunities for them to study Japanese language and culture in cooperation with universities and related institutions”.

Mr. Juan Carlos Nakasone Oshiro, President of the Peruvian Japanese Association, said, “This office is not only a physical space, but also a bridge between two cultures, a place for the exchange of academic knowledge and skills, joint research, and the promotion of joint cultural activities, as well as an important presence in the development of projects for the teaching and promotion of the Japanese language. It can also be an important presence in the development of projects for the teaching and dissemination of the Japanese language. The “Study in Japan” project, which is our primary focus, has the potential to offer Peruvian youth a great opportunity to study and to gain knowledge in Japan, a world leader in technology, research, science, culture, and other fields. We look forward to the positive impact this new endeavor will have in the future and hope that it will become a symbol of cooperation and friendship between Peru and Japan”. Afterwards, President Nagata and Chairman Nakasone cut the ribbon to celebrate the opening of the new office amidst a crowd of about 40 attendees.


With the establishment of the Satellite Office in the Peruvian Japanese Cultural Center, it is expected that the Satellite Office will be active in Peru and Spanish-speaking countries and will not only promote the acquisition of foreign students from Peru and Spanish-speaking countries, but will also help to further strengthen cooperation, especially in Japanese language education.
