Once in every two to three years we host
ARRC symposium in which findings are presented
in layman's terms. Participants come with
diverse backgrounds and from various levels
of society including government personnel
(national, prefectural, and local levels),
university faculties and students, NGOs,
and general public.
We participate in various types of exhibitions
