“Making Videos, Making Friends:
Nagano Meets Rwanda”

In 2020, the Olympics come to Tokyo! Japanese kids will play a part in making guests feel welcome by creating videos to foster international friendships. Up first are kids from Nagano. When Nagano hosted the 1998 Winter Olympics, 74 local schools each connect with and cheer for a specific country. 20 years later, grassroots ties endure. As they learn about how kids from other countries live, how will Japan's kids grow? Our documentary series "Kids Meet the World" is off and running!
