According to Japanese media, Japan’s Immigration Bureau notified nearly half of the country’s Japanese language schools in February, in which at least 10 students were either expelled or dropped off in 2015, to adopt stricter policies for overseas students from five countries including China, Vietnam, Nepal, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka.
