There are 25 students and chaperones between the ages of 19-27. There are college, grad, and ph. D. students all from Kanazawa University. Part of the goal of this exchange is to socialize with Americans around the same age to help the students learn about our culture.

This luncheon is a farewell to those students and chaperones Local community leaders and Consulate General of Japan staff will also be attending this event. The event will take place on Monday, December 5th from 11 AM to 1 PM at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Detroit-Dearborn.
