Holiday in Hidaka is a cultural-exchange program, co-organized by International Student Center, Office of International Affairs, Hokkaido University and National Hidaka Youth Outdoor Learning Center. The program has been a support program for international students, designed to offer them the opportunity to enjoy a trip and learn about Japanese culture. International students have been considered to have difficulties with going on trips for financial reasons and language barriers. However, there has been a change in the situations of international students: English sings for international travelers are now seen around Sapporo, and there are various exchange events for international students offered by other organizations. This year, therefore, the organizer decided to change the character of the program from the event to support international student life to a program for cross-cultural understanding, focusing more on interaction between participants. This is a work in progress report of our effort to develop an international exchange program for multi-cultural education.
