Background and History

              Students at Miyazaki International college joined River Lin in an   

             exploratory series of conversations we called the "Discovery

             Class". Ten years after graduation, Keisuke Tange had a longing for

             those conversations to be resummed and therefore birthed the idea 

             of the English Cyber Cafe.
