About Us

The Echizen City International Association (EIA) is a non-profit volunteer organization serving the people of Echizen City. (Except for the executive staff, all activity is done through the efforts of our volunteers.)

The EIA exists to promote the diversity of cultures in Echizen City without regards to race or nationality; to build a peaceful and harmonious society in Echizen City by considering everyone’s needs; and to accomplish the following points through citizen action:

  • to understand and accept the differences in cultures and values of different cultures through cultural exchange activities
  • to help people from different cultural backgrounds live together through promotion of information and education
  • to resolve societal issues and uncertainties that foreign residents may have through multicultural support
