Students, teachers and professionals are among the frequent visitors to the Uzbek-Japanese Center. It has a library, video and audio collections and an internet access section.

At present, about 300 people are learning Japanese language at the center. Those intending to pursue a career in business may attend professional management program, as well as short-term special courses and seminars, or take distance learning courses.

Calligraphy lessons, tea ceremonies, national cuisine and musical instruments playing courses and many other events help to deepen the cultural ties between Uzbekistan and Japan, UzA notes.
