Sixteen members of the Cambodia junior national canoe team are scheduled to visit Japan from September 17“25 as part of the Japan Exchange Program JENESYS 2019 promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).

We invite the group to enjoy canoe-related tours and lectures in Tokyo, and then to visit Ishikawa Prefecture to participate in the 15th Japan Canoe Sprint Junior/Junior Youth Komatsu Tournament, joint practice with the Japan national team, a social gathering with high school students, and other activities, all in an effort to promote personal exchange between Japan and Cambodia through sports.
