The Nagoya International Center carries out a variety of activities for international exchange throughout the year. In cooperation with other local international exchange organizations, NIC organizes lectures, seminars, parties, exhibitions, and other events aimed at introducing the cultures and lifestyles of peoples around the world and improving relationships between Japanese and foreign residents.

Main NIC-sponsored event announcements are made in NIC News, Nagoya Calendar, and  ZIP FM Global Voice (77.8 MHz). You can also stay up to date by following us on Twitter @the_nic or liking us on Facebook.

In addition to organizing events, the Nagoya International Center also co-sponsors and supports activities for international exchange and cooperation that are run by civic organizations. The NIC introduces these organizations, promotes their activities, and provides rental facilities at reduced rates.

Please direct inquiries about conditions for eligibility and applications for the NIC’s support to the Exchange and Cooperation Projects Division at 052-581-5689.

Nagoya to Azerbaijan

After attending the 2005 Aichi World Expo Tarana Huseynova wanted to bring a piece of Japan back with her to her native Azerbaijan. A Japanese woman that Tarana met at the Expo took the idea a step further and in April 2006 sent 10 cherry saplings to her in Azerbaijan.
