On this episode, we follow Mali-born Oussouby Sacko, who has been the president of Kyoto Seika University for the past 2 years. He's been devoting himself to fostering interchanges between Japanese students and those from abroad who've been increasing in numbers thanks to Sacko's efforts. However, the pandemic is making it harder for him to pursue his goal of a university open to diversity. We also meet Kosim Bokiev from Tajikistan, who works in the wholesale of fruit and vegetables in Tokyo.
