Japanese students make a study tour to Kuwaiti Embassy

The Kuwaiti embassy in Tokyo has welcomed a fresh group of junior high school students for their study tour, showing its popularity among Japanese youngsters never fades away.
At their talks with Haytham Al-Subih, a diplomat of the embassy, the students from Ageo West Junior High School in Saitama Prefecture, about 30 km northwest of Tokyo, expressed a deep interest in Al-Subih's views and impressions on Japan, his favorite Japanese food, and opinions on the local people.
They were also particularly keen to learn about the daily life of Kuwaitis and the types of issues which Kuwait faces now.
One student asked specifically about the 412-meter-high Al-Hamra Tower, Kuwait's most modernized skyscraper which is due to open in the first quarter of next year.
Traditional Kuwaiti sweets full of Arabic seasonings and spices, which were served during the briefing, also delighted the teenage visitors.
In conclusion of the study session, the students gave an introduction to their school and presented a handmade token to the diplomat. They also received gifts prepared by the embassy and took a group photo with Al-Subih before leaving the site.
This educational and cultural exchange between the Japanese students and the Kuwaiti embassy has become a yearly tradition, according to the embassy.
"Headed by Ambassador Abdulrahman Al-Otaibi, we make use of such an exchange as one of the means to help the Japanese people gain more understanding of Kuwait.
