The Cancellation of the IATSS Forum Fall Batch (September to November 2020)

We regret to announce that the 63rd IATSS Forum, scheduled from September to November 2020, has been canceled for the following reasons.

  1. According to the Immigration Services Agency, currently foreign nationals from certain countries including India, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, and Malaysia are subject to denial of landing.
  2. Under the current measures by the Japanese government, any individual who lands in Japan, regardless of nationality, must undergo a 14-day period of self-isolation.
  3. Upon the completion of the program in Japan, there is a risk of traveling restrictions back to respective countries from Japan, such as refusal of aircraft landings, denial of landing, facility quarantines and so on.
  4. There is always the possibility of another wave of COVID-19 outbreak in Japan, under the current circumstance.

Greeting of farewell from Mr. Kaneko Apr 18, 2017


Hello everyone.

This is Mr. Kaneko, executive adviser of IATSS.

I would like to announce that I have transferred to the IATSS head office in Tokyo and have become the executive adviser of IATSS.

I became the general manager of the IATSS Forum last April. In this year, I was able to learn many things from spending time with 55th and 56th batch participants.

At first, I was told that “We can manage the IATSS Forum better for everyone if they relate to us and want to evolve consistently.” The time was limited, and still we are halfway to the goal. However I think we are able to finish what we have to do because of your warm support. Thank you very much.

Mr. Ichiro Uekusa takes over my role.

For those of you who have supported the IATSS Forum for years, I would like to ask for your continuous support and cooperation.

I look forward to seeing you all again in my new role as executive adviser.
