国際交流員からの挨拶 | Greetings from the CIRs

こんにちは!私たちは浜松市役所国際課の国際交流員(Coordinator for International Relations)です!


 浜松市役所のCIRは2007年から、月刊のニュースレターを発行し、自分の国と文化を紹介しています。 2020年に新たな年代を記念して、ニュースレターを見直し、市公式サイトのページを作りました!



Hello, we are the Coordinators for International Relations working at Hamamatsu City Hall!

We are part of the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program (JET) which was started in 1987 to promote internationalisation in Japan's local communities. JET helps to place foreign participants in schools, city halls, boards of education etc. across Japan as either Assistant Language Teachers (ALT), Coordinators For International Relations (CIR) or Sports Exchange Advisors (SEA).

Since 2007, Hamamatsu CIRs have been publishing a monthly newsletter to introduce their countries and cultures. This year, to mark the new decade, we have revamped the newsletter to give it a new design and home on the Hamamatsu City official website!

CIRs (Coordinators for International Relations) are mainly assigned to the international exchange departments of local governments to engage in international exchange activities.

現在の浜松市国際交流員(CIR)の紹介 | Introducing the Current CIRs


ダニエル・フイン イギリス出身。 Daniel Huynh from the U.K.


4th year on the JET Programme. Started studying Japanese in University after taking an interest in Japanese film and martial arts. Came to Hamamatsu through the JET Programme after graduation in 2018. Hobbies are Igo and Martial Arts. Currently doing Okinawan Karate, aiming to get my brown belt in October.


Graceグレイス・ウォルシュ スイス生まれ、アイルランド出身。 Grace Walsh from Ireland.



1st year on the JET Programme. I became interested in Japanese through traditional culture, such as kimono and shamisen, so I decided to study Japanese in University. After graduating university, I worked in a cafe for just under two years, and then came to Hamamatsu through the JET Programme. It's my first time to come to Hamamatsu, so I want to take part in everything I can! My hobbies included Cafe Crawling, making cakes and reading. I love Haruki Murakami, so lately I'm re-reading his books in Japanese.

From now until the end, let's be bright and work hard together! Looking forward to getting to know you all!






HAMAWAVE is a quarterly magazine about international exchange and life in Japan written by Hamamatsu City CIRs at the International Affairs Division. Originally a newsletter called "The Hama CIR News," it was first published in 2007, and until now, was only made available to city employees.

At the beginning of 2020, we renamed it the "HAMAWAVE" and have been publishing monthly editions on the official Hamamatsu City website.
