Hokudai International Student Center (ryuugakusei sentaa – 留学生センター） is the center for foreign students to meet together, ask about anything, learn Japanese and etc. There are staffs who can speaks English, Chinese and of course Japanese. Here is the website.
I am attending Kanji Class at the center. Most of the times, I found many useful information at the bulletin board for example
– sightseing tour group
– giving away / selling out stuffs from previous students at low price
– current enforced laws/regulations in Japan
For foreign studens, this is the must-go place in Hokudai 🙂
Meet friends there!
