Kazaguruma

Expo Symbol
Kazaguruma

International students are symbolized as the wind and Japan as the windmill.
The appearance of the windmill spinning from the wind evokes the image that foreign students play an active role in moving Japan. The kazaguruma is a traditional Japanese toy, and the way it turns is enjoyable and entertaining to those who see it. We hope that this expo will have the same effect for everyone.
