For students in Central Asia (one year program)--an opportunity to study about Japan

I got an information about MA course on Japanese studies at Tsukuba University. It seems that students from Central Asia are eligible. As I am not in charge of this program, all inquiries and requests should be directly sent to the university. I will not respond. I only commend this program. Akio KAWATO
