Jake Yasumori and Yu Sasaki will be spending the summer at Ehime Prefectural International Center 公益財団法人愛媛県国際交流協会 (EPIC), in Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, under the guidance of manager Noriko Omori. The internship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the interns to immerse themselves in Japanese culture, Ehime-style, with great attention to “omotenashi ” or first class hospitality. They will also share vibrant Hawaiian culture with students in their classrooms, and visitors to the center. Congratulations to Jake and Yu for being selected as ambassadors of goodwill from Hawaii to Japan through EPIC, the UH Manoa Center for Japanese Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and JASH.
