What is this session about?

Hometown is a place where one was born and grew up. There isn’t any place that would make you more comfortable than your hometown. No matter how far we go, our hometown will always be our most beloved destination and deeply rooted in our memories.

We will invite two guest speakers to bring us a special tour to their hometowns in China and Japan. Let’s join this workshop to view the beautiful sceneries and experience the local cultures and legends. Enjoy!
