Yomiuri wrote in its Saturday evening edition that many foreign students have been unable to visit or study in Japan due to restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic, saying that some of them have elected to study in other countries. School administrators are alarmed that if the trend continues, foreign students may lose interest in Japan as a place to study or pursue research and that the country’s “internationalization” not only in academia but also in the economic arena will be undermined as a result. The article quoted U.S. Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Greene as saying: “The United States encourages the exchange of students, researchers, and scholars especially with Japan. We look forward to the resumption of travel of American students to Japan for study.”
