Kuwait embassy welcomes Japanese students anew

The Kuwaiti embassy in Tokyo has welcomed a fresh group of local junior high school students for their study tour, in a reflection of its popularity among Japanese young visitors.
While learning about bilateral relations and historical information about Kuwait, the 11 students from Tokyo's Akiruno Municipal Mido Junior High School have shown keen interest in daily student life of their Kuwaiti counterparts.
"We are particularly amazed that many Japanese animation programs are on-air by the Kuwaiti television, and electronic games from Japan's Nintendo and Sony enjoy great popularity among Kuwaiti youths," the statement quoted a leading member of the group as saying during the tour according to the embassy statement that added that they seemed pleased to find that Kuwaiti youngsters share similar interests with them.
Traditional Kuwaiti sweets served during the briefing also delighted the teenage visitors. Those with special spices drew the boys in particular.
Joined by Second Secretary Mohammad Al-Mutairi at the embassy, the students took pictures after wearing Kuwaiti traditional costumes at the end of the study tour.
Situated in the heart of Tokyo with an elegantly designed building, the Kuwaiti embassy wins a good reputation in Japanese schools by taking a cooperative stance toward study tour and receives a steady flow of young visitors, including those from distant places.
