The Nihon Ki-in, in association with the Sasakawa Foundation, would like to invite THREE students under the age of 24, who are promising players in British Go, to visit Japan in October for some extensive Go studying and have sent us the following invitation:
1) Air ticket
We will provide up to JPY 120,000 per student for the air ticket.
Students will arrange their flights and give us a copy of the ticket receipts. Upon our receipt of these receipts in Tokyo, we will provide grant assistance up to JPY 120,000 per student.
We will provide them with accommodation during their stay in Japan from 2nd to 13th October. They will stay at our designated accommodation in Tokyo, this might include sharing a triple-bed room.
We will cover their transportation costs associated with our programs in Japan during their stay in Japan from 2nd to 13th October.
The three students will be responsible for all expenses for their meals and drinks during their stay in Japan. (They may be provided with or invited to lunch or dinner on some of these days.)
5) Accompanying Person
If a student under the age of 18 is selected, an adult person will be required to accompany him or her. The accompanying person will bear the expense of his/her air ticket to Tokyo and we will provide them with accommodation during their stay in Japan from 2nd to 13th October.
Apologies for the short notice, but the funding has only been confirmed in the last few days.
The Nihon Ki-in has also thanked us for our publicising their Summer Go School. There are 7 British participants this year, one third of the total!
