Dr. Joseph Hardy Neesima traveled to France with Fujimaro Tanaka, the commissioner of education of Japanese government, between July 16 and 20 in 1872 and stayed in Paris only four or five days. He was fascinated by the beautiful and spreading downtown. Probably drawing his heart immensely, Paris attracted Neesima to come back to the city again for sightseeing from Germany.

The Second Doshisha Alumni Association Grand Reunion abroad will be held in this fantastic town of Paris where Neesima also visited two times. You are cordially welcome to join this superb event with your friends.
