The Sakura Science Exchange Program was started in 2014 by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). It aims to give high school students from around the world the opportunity to learn about Japan's cutting-edge science and technology, and hopefully be inspired by the innovation of research institutes like the ones at Tohoku University.
