Visits to the Diet and Committees


 I visited the House of Councillors "Sangiin",which is the upper house of the National Diet of Japan ,with graduate students of a course of Public Manegement in Waseda University.

 We simulated to disscuss and pass the bill about giving 18 year-old people the right to vote, in the mock comittiee and prenary session. 

 After that, we went for a tour of Diet building, and listend to the explanation of the Diet.



 We're planning to study the process of legislation and how to make it. Finally, we'll presents our bills and discuss together.

Based on the study, I'd like to make learning program of legislation for pupils in schools.
