What is Minato UNESCO
Minato UNESCO Association (MUA) is a grass-roots volunteer organization based in Minato City, Tokyo. In retrospect it was in Minato City that Japan saw the first establishment of foreign countries' diplomatic outposts. Today the city accommodates more than half of the total foreign embassies located in Japan. The relative share of foreigner population in the city's total population is among the highest nationwide. The number of foreign companies based in Minato City is larger than anywhere else in Japan. It was against the backdrop of such regional characteristic that MUA was founded in 1981 with a mission to promote better communication between Japanese and foreign residents in the city. Today MUA members comprise not only those who either live or work in the city but also those who live in the Tokyo metropolitan area. MUA's activities are rich in variety, ranging from symposiums on timely topics, which encourage us to think about how we should behave with global viewpoints, to workshops in traditional Japanese culture such as Kabuki and Kyogen. MUA also holds cross-cultural awareness programs, world cooking workshops, and English classes while participating in Minato City citizens' festivals.
