A wonderful field trip to Japan
2018-01-03

[SCIE web news, Jan 3rd, 2018] As one of the most developed countries, and the third biggest economy, Japan is attracting millions of visitors due to its great Anime, music, etc. Form 17th December to 23rd December, a field trip to Japan is organized by Ms. Lisa. This filed trip aims to improve Japanese students’ Japanese skill, practise Japanese in daily life, and obtain a deeper understanding in Japan culture. As a field trip to Japan was unable to be organized last year, students currently in A1 who have studied Japanese in G level also joined the field trip.

32 students, together with 3 teachers visited Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Mie-ken, Yamanashi-ken (Mt. Fuji), and the capital of Japan-----Tokyo in just 6 days. While visiting the historical sites of Japan, we also practised our Japanese speaking. After learning for one and a half years, conversation during shopping doesn’t seem to be difficult for us.

 

After half a day of traveling, we arrived at a hotel close to Osaka/Kansai airport in 11 o’clock pm. After resting during the night, we started the agenda for next day, which is going to the Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto. In Kiyomizu Temple, we experienced great and marvelous ancient wood construction, and learned knowledge about the local Japanese religen: the Shintoism. 

 Guided by the guide, we had our lunch in very famerous Japanese style restaruant: Izakaya (Bar in English). We seated on Tatami to experience pure Japanese seating. Apart from alchol free drinks, everything else (such as the food and room decoration) is purely Japanese style. 

 We arrived at the prosperous business street in Osaka, the Shinsaibashi. Here we tasted delicious snack including Takoyaki and Sushi. Some of us also purchased some electronic products here. This is an excellent chance for us to practice our Japanese speaking. 

 On the second day, we visited the biggest wood-structure building, the Todaiji. With the blue sky in background, the building is very grand. In the park in front of the Todaiji, we played with the deer in Nara, and even tried to feed them. 

 In the third day, despite the extreme coldness, we went to the representation of Japan: the Mt. Fuji. In Gulinpa (a local snow park), we experienced the fantasy feeling of skating. In order to be protected from the extreme coldness, everyone wore their thickest coat. Some of us even wore scarf and mask. It was very exciting for some of us as they haven’t seen snow at any time before.

 

 In the afternoon we arrived at the vary famous Fuji-Q highland in where the ‘world’s fastest roller coaster’ and the ‘world’s most scary haunted house’. However, some of us didn’t have enough time, so they didn’t enter these two. That was a pity. Under the shade of sun setting, Mt. Fuji appeared to be glorious.


In night we stayed in a Japanese style hot water bath hotel.

In the fourth day, we went to the capital of Japan: Tokyo. Tokyo is the economic center of Japan. We first visited the top university in Japan, the University of Tokyo. The beautiful scenery and academic atmosphere deeply touched everyone. In afternoon we visited the Tokyo National Museum in Taido region. In here the history of Japan is recorded from Japanische Schnurkeramik Kultur to Meiji Reform. Facing to the cultural relic from thousands years ago, everyone has some special feeling in their mind.

 

Then, we visited the Sensoji temple in Tokyo. Sensoji is very famous in Japan. Snacks nearby such as fried Manjo attracts us a lot. We also prayed for fortune in Sensoji temple. The dinner was familiar to us; it is Chinese cusine.


The fifth day in Japan is free day. We got the chance to visit wherever we want nearby. Some of us went shopping in Akihabara for Animation related goods. Shopping in Shinjyuku and Ginza was also a popular option. Some of us visited the second highest building in the world: the Tokyo Skytree. It was quite tired but very meaningful day for all of us.


This filed trip to Japan has provided us with opportunity to learn Japanese culture and customes, and also enabled us to practise Japanese speaking. After this filed trip, our confiencen in speaking Japanese and interest in learning Jaoanese is greatly increased.
