On our second day of our study trip to Berlin, the FAUMUN delegation was invited to visit the Japanese German Center Berlin. After arriving, we were introduced to various Japanese traditions as well as cultural practices and habits that are typical Japanese such as bowing when greeting someone or handing one’s business card with both hands. We learned about the importance of respect, loyalty, and the fact that Japanese people are rather reserved and indirect when communicating.

In addition, we discussed questions concerning ways of communication as a Japanese delegate in a MUN context. Afterwards, the Delegation got the chance to ask any arising questions ranging from communication, typical traits, or Japanese perspectives on some of our NMUN topics.

Overall the visit to the Center was an enriching experience that helped us prepare for our conference in New York City.

A wholehearted thank you to the Japanese German Center Berlin and specifically to Secretary-General Dr. Julia Münch for welcoming us and providing answers to all of our questions!
