Uzbekistan, the beautiful blue world, Mongolia, the country of the prairie. This seminar will invite experts and local residents from the two countries as keynote speakers to introduce the highlights and lifestyles of Uzbekistan and Mongolia.
Looking west from Japan on the world map, the vast Eurasian continent unfolds. This region covers nearly 40% of the world’s landmass and is home to many countries that do not lie near the sea, also known as “Inner Asia”. The countries known as East Asia and Central Asia actually have many pro-Japanese countries and many scenic spots. This time I would like to introduce Uzbekistan and Mongolia among them.
