It may be hard to warm up with strangers in the beginning but once everyone is working toward the same goal etc, it was fun.
I think we learn from one another on how to approach each other on a common goal, especially when you come from a very different background.
I think it is very important that Japanese students and ASEAN students have the opportunity to meet up with people from different places and different cultures. Meeting new people from different countries always helps broaden your horizon. The experiences from the workshop will surely encourage the growth of globalization in Japan.
