Field trip in Nara and Osaka
65 Bekka students went on a field trip to Osaka and Nara on August 2 and 3.
On the first day of the trip, the students visited Meiji Yogurt Factory and observed the manufacturing process with cutting-edge technologies. And then, they moved to Kawachi Winery in Osaka and enjoyed learning about a history of Kawachi wine and how wine is brewed as well as wine tasting.
After that, they played long rope jumping and also worked in a group to create Senryu (Japanese form of short poetry) at Asuka Institute of Kansai University.
On the second day, they visited Tōdai-ji temple to learn the culture of Buddhism. Also they strolled around the historical city of Nara and enjoyed many historical architectures.
Lastly, they broadened knowledge about the history of Osaka through the exhibitions at Osaka Museum of History. After experiencing a life-sized archaeological excavation replica, they enjoyed walking through reproduced towns of Osaka from Edo to the modern era.
It was a great opportunity for the Bekka students to know closer each other and learn about Japanese culture and technology.
