[PT] O Discover Nikkei chamou minha atenção e interesse pela amplitude de sua circulação, global, e pela gama de assuntos que aborda, sempre focando algum assunto de interesse da Comunidade Nikkei espalhada pelo mundo todo. Considero, com isso, que o Discover Nikkei ajuda a aproximar e fortalecer os laços entre os japoneses e seus descendentes, mantendo vivas as tradições e cultura de um povo milenar.
