4th Meeting in Continuous Series

On January 26th, we held our 4th meeting of our continuous series entitled “Exchange with Immigrant Workers in Japan”.
Our guest speakers were Mr. Zahid and Mr. Salam from Bangladesh. They talked about the reasons why they came to Japan and the experiences
of jobs they have done. In early 90s, when they came to Japan, that was so difficult for
foreigners to find an apartment. This was also mentioned by the previous guest form
Myanmar. The reasons why the guests were declined for an apartment were that they are
from Bangladesh and the landlord thought the smell of food such as curry would disturb
The participants asked the guests about their work environment or religions, then the
meeting passed by fast. The guest prepared “Biryani”, which is mixed rice dish, and all the
participants enjoyed eating that.
