Ho Chi Minh City Japanese School Students Introduced to Ships and Ports

Supporting activities to build bridges between Japan and Vietnam

On November 28, NYK conducted a social studies tour for 48 junior high school students from Ho Chi Minh Japanese School in Vietnam, introducing them to the work of ships and ports.

This tour is part of a project celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Vietnam. The tour, in which NYK is a partner, aims to arrange visits to Japan-related facilities in Vietnam that are not usually seen to learn about their connection with Japan.
The tour included a visit to the Saigon Premier Container Terminal, a trading port connecting Japan and Vietnam, and a presentation on the work and life of seafarers who support trade. The participating children asked questions such as "How many ships enter and leave Japan each day?" and "How long do I have to study to become a seafarer?" These questions helped to deepen their understanding of the shipping industry and the connection between Japan and Vietnam.

NYK will continue to support activities that build bridges between Japan and Vietnam while conveying to the children who will lead the next generation the appeal of the maritime industry and the work of seafarers.
