[Ama Town Office] [Interaction x Challenge] Why Study Abroad Now? What is the value of the original experience brought by a new trip called “Study abroad on an island for adults”? We will hold a talk session event!
Business trip to Tokyo from a remote island in Shimane Prefecture! On November 13, 2022 (Sunday), we will hold an event for “Otona no Shima Study Abroad”.

The General Incorporated Foundation Dozen Furusato Attractiveness Foundation (Shimane Prefecture Okijimae) will collaborate with three Okijimae towns and villages in Shimane Prefecture (Ama Town, Nishinoshima Town, Chibu Village) and will open a workshop in Tokyo on Sunday, November 13, 2022. In Tokyo, we will hold a talk session titled “What is the value of the original experience brought about by a new trip to study abroad on the island for adults?”
As more and more people take on the challenge of studying abroad in a community, participants asked questions such as, “Why study abroad in a community now?” I would like to think about it together with you. In addition, we will hold a briefing session and a consultation session for the “Otona no Shima Study Abroad,” which is a study abroad program in the region.
A talk session was held on “What is the value of the original experience brought about by the new trip of studying abroad on an island for adults?” Sign up here.

Why are young people fascinated by the region now?
Did you know that in recent years, there has been a growing interest both in Japan and overseas in the countryside, where the unspoiled scenery of Japan spreads, and in local communities where you can feel the activities of people? Among young people in Japan (especially those living in urban areas), there has been a rapid increase in the number of people taking a leave of absence from university or quitting their jobs and seeking a unique experience of their own to study abroad in the local community.
While the number of regional study abroad programs in Japan is increasing, there is a “work-type trial migration system” called “Otona no Shima Ryugaku” in Shimane Prefecture and the Oki Islands. After the system was launched in 2020, about 200 young people (including university students and working adults) are using the system in about two years, and every year they challenge themselves to study abroad on the island of adults from all over the country. It is. After the program ended, about 20 of them ended up moving to the island (employing).

Talk session with young people who are practicing studying abroad on the island of adults
At this event, we will use the “Otona no Shima Study Abroad” system, and welcome young people who are currently practicing studying on the Otona Island as guests.
“Why study abroad now?”
“What is the value of the original experience brought about by a new journey of studying abroad on an island for adults?”
I’m going to think about the question with the participants. In the second half of the event, we will also hold a recruiting briefing and consultation session for studying abroad in the 5th year of Reiwa. After the end of Part 1, we are planning to have a get-together with everyone, including guests and participants who wish to attend.
We are waiting for applications from many people!
