 About the Multicultural Affairs Division

The Multicultural Affairs Division exists to look after the non-Japanese population of Shizuoka Prefecture and implementing plans and procedures to allow non-Japanese people to assimilate into Japanese society. The division employs people from Japan, Brazil, the United States, and the Philippines. In addition to in-house native checking and translations for English, Portuguese, and Tagalog, the international staff visit various schools within the prefecture, where they give presentations in Japanese about their home countries to try and raise global awareness in the youth of Japan. The Multicultural Affairs Division also hosts a radio show on K-MIX, supervises a Facebook page and Twitter page, and maintains this website, all as part of an effort to get important or useful information out to people interested in, and residents of, Shizuoka Prefecture.
