What is needed to live together, mutually understanding each others culture, customs and way of thinking, and supporting regional communities, regardless of nationality or ethnicity?
Let’s think about it together through participative learning.

Teaching Material (1) Here comes a “Gaijin”!

A lot of unemployed people from country Z have just moved in to an apartment block in town A. After a while, the head of the residents’ association starts getting complaints. Just who are they from? The locals or the people from country Z?
