Lectures to Commemorate the 150th Anniversary of Japan-Germany Exchange -- "Living and Studying in Germany"

2009-12-18 (Fri) 1:00 p.m. - 3:40 p.m.

2011 is the 150th anniversary of the Japan-Prusso Treaty of Amity and Commerce. At the end of the 17th century, Engelbert Kaempfer visited Japan. In the early 18th century, many Germans including Philipp Franz Balthasar von Siebold, who affected Japanese medicine profoundly, visited Japan. After the beginning of the Meiji Era, many Japanese students went to Germany to study and returned with the latest technology.

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Japan-Germany exchange, the German Embassy and German Consulate General Osaka-Kobe will hold lectures at Osaka University as a project for youngsters on Friday, December 18.

It is hoped that students interested in Germany and considering studying there will take this opportunity to learn more about doing so.
