    AWEP “Anshin Tsushin” on Internet radio FM YY

    AWEP  e-mails useful information for foreign residents once or twice a month to registered recipients. The information is written in easy Japanese and English.
    You can also listen to our “Tips and Info” on your cell phones or computers. If many people listen to it, local Japanese people can also get ideas of what kind of information foreign residents need. We aim to create a society where residents can get to know, understand, and connect with each other regardless of their nationalities.
