On 4 March 2017 a group of students and professors of Fuzhou University Law School visited the OCU Faculty of Law for an exchange project on ‘Natural disasters and the Law’. The project had been selected for the Sakura Science exchange program of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (official title Japan-Asia Youth Exchange Program in Science). Its aim was to analyze disaster prevention, relief, recovery and reconstruction measures in China and Japan, identifying existing problems and developing a vision for improvement based on currently available technology.

The workshops at OCU consisted of lectures showing examples of large scale natural disasters in China and Japan and a comparative analysis of the legal systems related to disaster prevention in both countries. It was a meaningful opportunity for both sides to learn from each other's experiences. The entire program lasted one week and included a visit of afflicted areas of the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake Memorial Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution and observations of the disaster prevention measures at major companies in Osaka Prefecture.
