2015 Summer Kobe Program
The 2015 Summer Kobe was led by Ms. Mutsuko Sato. UD students visited Kyoto and Osaka with their language partners, as well as Nara during a homestay weekend. Himeji city and castle was visited once more during the Yukata (a light cotton summer kimono/pajama) festival, and this year students had an optional trip to Hiroshima, visiting Miyajima Shrine and the Atomic Bomb Museum. Cultural activities included naginata (a marital art involving a Japanese halberd- a blade at the end of a long pole), shodo (calligraphy) , sado, (tea ceremony), and much more.
As always, we sent two students on scholarship to Soka University for a year, one student to Seinan University on exchange, and seven students to Akita for our fall semester program.
