JAPAN
HOUR

For over a year, we have consistently involved IITH students in cultural immersion, Japanese language, etiquette and friendship lessons, resulting in their active participation in SIC's internship activities and heightened interest in pursuing opportunities with Japanese companies So far, students have learned basic Japanese greetings and conversations, Hiragana, how to exchange business cards in Japanese style, how to bow, how to practice Japanese calligraphy; Shuji, a trial of Japanese classic summer cloth; Yukata, and so on. Through these activities, we have acquired active participants to other programs and activities projected by SIC, observed

increased number of IITH students who begun to show interests in getting a job in Japan and that students who have been continuously attending JH for over a year become proficient in Japanese and some of them are interested in JLPT. IITH has a strong relationship with the Japanese government and companies, and some students choose to attend IITH because of its Japanese engagement. Japanese companies will confront with a scarcity of manpower according to a survey, so we expect that more IITH students would be interested in Japan and Japanese firms, as well as serving as a bridge between the two countries.

SYNC &
SHARE

Sync & Share, organized annually by SIC, serves as a pivotal networking event aimed at nurturing and expanding the collaborative ecosystem between India and Japan. SIC believes that such networking events play a crucial role in promoting synergies and enhancing collaboration among our stakeholders. Our commitment is reflected in the provision of interactive networking opportunities tailored for academics, entrepreneurs, and industries, fostering deeper ties between the two nations.

The event encompasses not only conversational networking sessions but also discussion-based intercultural networking events. In December 2022,

SIC Members appeared in “YUKATA”, summer version of Japanese traditional wear “KIMONO”, and gave them a brief introduction of Japan in the context of comparison to India, including geographical features, culture, industry advantages and disadvantages, and the 5 Secrets of Japanese efficiency in manufacturing. 

Children as well as the principal of the school, the local chief, and many teachers at the site had an opportunity to interact with SIC members directly so as to clear the doubts in their mind about Japan.

NOVELTY
PROJECT

This project started along with a networking event held on December 2022, based on a concept of "INSTEAD OF GIVING YOU A GIFT, WE GIVE ONE TO A CHILD”. We decided to provide 200 school bags embroidered with our SIC logo to the students in 2 villages, which corresponded to the number of guests we expected that night. Furthermore, we decided to add something unique for the new year occasion, external “Japan Hour”, which we usually conduct in the IITH campus. First, The members of SIC visited a government school in the village of "Mamidipally" to give special new year gifts to the students on 4th January.
