This interpretive examination into the social representation of intercultural exchange at one of the lately settled international universities in Japan, used quasi-structured interviews with 5 staff members and 22 students to gain insight into their perceptions of intercultural exchange and interactions. The results point out the supremacy of nation-bound and instrumental interculturality representations, and indicate the interest of integrating intercultural interaction matters into formal curriculums whilst observing intercultural connectivity, interchange and hybridity in both institutional and interpersonal levels.
