We work in close partnership with the Sapporo International Communication Plaza and are registered with L-Plaza as HMSC - Hokkaido Multinational Support Community.
This group was originally founded by Michiyo Yoshida as MSC under the umbrella of "Neighbors" in January 2015. From April 2019 it has been restructured as HMSC with an expanded vision and mission to benefit all those who join or attend presentations as guests. Your participation and support is welcomed.
