Thank you very much.

KOBAYASHI SHINYA, Department of Men's Liberal Arts, pays attention to modern society, politics, and economy in China and Southeast Asia, and is reading books on reform and opening up.

I am Kobayashi, and I am participating in this "Thinking Beijing" project. During the two days of activities, everyone has already said very beautifully, so I am only talking about some of my own feelings.

I think the meaning and characteristics of this project are the word "thinking." The opinions and opinions shared by the teachers have been very inspiring and will enable us to deepen our understanding of Beijing and Chinese society and culture. Through these two days of activities, I once again felt the charm of various traditional cultures created by a long history, while clearly recognizing the rapid development of contemporary China's economy and technology.

Although I feel that my understanding of China is deepening every day, I still feel that it is not enough. First, because their knowledge about China and Japan is not sufficient, and second, because the level of Chinese language has not yet reached a level that can fully understand the esoteric level of the teachers' speeches. I must continue to study and hope to make some contributions to China-Japan friendship in the future.

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all the teachers. Please also give us a lot of advice in the following itinerary.

Today, Chairman Bai Yunfeng told us the secrets of starting a business and the situation in China. What impressed me the most was the reasons for the entrepreneurship of Chinese young people. In the past, they started to make money, and now they are responsible for their business. When I listened to this opinion, I had the feeling that "How can Japan beat China?" Asked about the future ideals of Japanese teenagers, and replied that ideals are almost nothing about starting a business. At the same time, smartphones and computers in Japan are mainly objects of parental restrictions, not objects of learning. Now China has perfected IT education, and APP, IT and other aspects have achieved remarkable development. I think that with China as an example, Japan must also invest in budgets to promote the improvement of entrepreneurship education and IT education and formulate a sustainable development strategy.

MIYAZEKI TAKAOMI, Senior Faculty of Law, prepares for postgraduate study, hopes to engage in judicial work in the future; interested in Chinese tea culture

In the evening, I visited the Pangoal Institution Company. Teacher Yi Peng told me that "the information that is too beautiful or too bad is fake", "the importance of accepting the rise of China" and so on. I strongly feel a deep understanding of the necessity of China.

SHIBUYA SOHNOSUKE, the second year of the men's education department, loves to travel, study in Italy during the summer, thinks that there are similarities in the Chinese and Italian; I want to know the latest ideas of Chinese people.

Very grateful opportunity, thank you very much. The discussion is very meaningful. It also helps me to understand the problems of modern China and makes me want to study harder. What I want to learn in particular is the policy of“One Belt, One Road”. This matter is also continuing to learn in Japan.

The teachers are very grateful.

Shima Tatsuya (SHIMADA YASUYUKI), a senior in the Faculty of Law, has been admitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; I hope to know "Beijing" that cannot be seen by personal strength alone.

The the Pangoal Institution that I went tonight also answered many of our questions. In particular, Teacher Yi Peng and Mr. Bai Yunfeng explained in many aspects the diplomatic, economic, social and cultural issues, which are very valuable to our students. Opportunity.

I would like to express my gratitude to the teachers and the gentlemen who arranged this event.■
