9. Overview

Marking the tenth time the Japan Education Fair was held in Indonesia since the first one in 1989, this year's gathering bustled with numerous visitors on both days. The total turnout of 5,152 visitors was the largest ever, and represented an addition of 1,600 visitors over last year's Fair. The use of the same convention center as last year's fair can be considered one of the reasons behind the increase in attendance, as the location is easily accessible even for high school students, and as visitors now seem to associate the center with the site of the fair.
Most of the visitors were locals-university and high school students, and parents and guardians from Jakarta-but similar to last year, there was also a significant turnout of visitors from such distant locations as Bandung and Surabaya.
As in previous fairs, many of the visitors' questions concerned scholarships, and Japanese embassy's booth was flooded with visitors seeking detailed information on Japanese Government Scholarships.
A large number of the visitors to AIEJ's booth had inquiries about the Examination for Japanese University Admission (EJU), which started to be administered this year. Given the strong interest in EJU in Jakarta, there is a need for AIEJ to respond by providing more information related to the examination.
The university booths received a broad range of queries. Students seeking to study at a graduate school wanted to know how they could search for a research advisor, while students at universities holding exchange partnerships with Japanese universities asked for information on those exchange programs. Visitors also sought details on such things as entrance examinations and major subjects.
As was the case last year, several booths ran out of materials for distribution because of the unexpected increase in attendance.
