There they were impressed by an automotive company, immersed in the culture through a tea ceremony and performance, and devoured the wonderful food the country offeres. At the end of the day, they learned the Japanese spirit of "ichi-go, ichi-e", cherishing every encounter in our lives.
They visit the Japanese External Trade Organization (JETRO), an organization facilitating foreign direct investment opportunities in Japan, and OMRON, an electronic company creating job opportunities for people with disabilities. Both exposing them to the unique and interesting dynamic of doing business in Japan.
