The annual International Fair at Shonan campus was conceived as an opportunity for Tokai University to boost its international credentials while at the same time helping our international students from all over the world form lasting bonds of friendship. This event gives students an opportunity to showcase their interests and achievements through exhibits, booths, and musical and other performances, with cultural presentations and activities from more than 20 different countries and/or regions. There are also three major speech contests on the day of the fair. The International Fair involves Japanese and international students, and has also proven popular with local residents, thus providing an important link to the local community. Tokai University is committed to bringing the outside world a little closer through a global educational outlook that seeks to break down barriers between cultures and promote mutual understanding.
