Their Imperial Highnesses Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko on Wednesday visited the Japanese language section of the University of Bucharest.
The high Japanese guests, who are in Romania on a visit that is part of the events of the year of friendship between Japan and the Danube countries, were shown the Japanese language laboratory within the Japanese language section of the University of Bucharest, which was set up in 1975.
On this occasion the students had the opportunity to talk with Their Imperial Highnesses. The rector of the University of Bucharest, Professor Ioan Panzaru, PhD, members of the management of the University and of the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures, Japan’s Ambassador in Bucharest Yoshinobu Higashi were also present all along the visit.
In October 2008 the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures of the University of Bucharest was equipped with a laboratory for studying Japanese, a donation by the Japanese Government.
This is part of a 65,349 euro grant contract signed in 2007 by the Japanese Government and the University of Bucharest for modernizing the equipment of the Japanese language section.
The laboratory has state-of-the-art equipment and a highly performing software ensuring the possibility of an interactive dialogue to the students that want to specialize in the Japanese language and culture.
The Japanese language section of the University of Bucharest, where about 150 students study, currently offers courses for taking the degree in Japanese studies and the only master’s degree course focusing on Japanese studies in Romania.
Prince Akishino, the second son of Emperor Akihito of Japan, and his wife, Princess Kiko, pay an official visit to Romania at the invitation of President Traian Basescu.
Their Imperial Highnesses are on a European tour, which began on May 10 on the year of friendship between Japan and the Danube countries: Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania.
In 2009 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Romanian-Japanese diplomatic relations being resumed.
