MEXT Undergraduate Students Participate in Study Tour to Yamanashi and Nagano Prefectures

October 22, 2015

On October 8th and 9th, MEXT Undergraduate students visited Yamanashi and Nagano prefectures with Japanese TUFS students.

The MEXT students made a Yamanashi local specialty, Hōtō, which is a hot pot with wide wheat-flour noodles and vegetables stewed in miso-flavored soup. They also enjoyed grape picking and visiting the Yamanashi Prefectural Maglev Exhibition Center and Matsumoto Castle, one of Japan’s national treasures.

MEXT students learned Japanese local culture together with Japanese students, with both groups making new discoveries. Throughout this study tour, they deepened their friendship.
