Risa Manabe, a first-year student in the Department of Social Informatics, said, "I want to become a person who can convey joy and pleasure to others like the circus performers do," Natsuki Yokoyama, a third-year student in the Department of Education, said, "I want to become a teacher who can convey to children the importance of facing challenges," and Shino Murakami said, "It was interesting to see the different characteristics of performances in each country.” Shino Murakami shared her thoughts, "It was interesting to see the different characteristics of the performances in each country.”


International exchange students, Park Seonyeong, a fourth-year student in the Department of Japanese Language and Literature, said, "The circus show was more interesting than I had imagined," and Huang Pin-xi added, "I was glad to have the opportunity to interact with the circus performers.”
