School trip -Los Angeles trip-

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:45

   School trip is one of the big high school events in Japan. In our school, the 2nd-year students were divided into three groups according to their destinations (Their destinations this year were: Tokyo&Kurobe, Hokkaido, and Los Angeles). I will show you what Los Angeles school trip was like.

Departure May 8th
   The students gathered at Matsuyama Airport in the evening. Now the long trip is going to start!

 
 

Day 2 May 8th
   We arrived at Los Angeles safely in the evening of May 8th local time! Soon after leaving Los Angeles Airport, we moved to Santa Monica Beach, where we enjoyed dinner at the food court, and then headed to our hotel. We all are fine, and looking forward to tomorrow’s UCLA!

 
 
 

Day 3 May 9th
   We had plenty of events today! We enjoyed attending classes and making a tour of UCLA, observing space shuttle Endeavour at Science Center, visiting Japanese American National Museum, and attending a dinner party held by Ehime Kenjinkai in LA.

 
 
 
 
 

Day 4 May 10th
   Today was the day to enjoy Disneyland and California Adventure! We also enjoyed American morning meal. It was cloudy, but luckily it didn’t rain, which gave us the best condition to enjoy the fantasy world around!
Tomorrow is the last day, so we will make a lot of good memories together!

 
 
 
 

Day 5 May 11th
   We first visited Tanaka Farm, eating BBQ lunch and picking strawberries! In the afternoon we went to Universal Studio Hollywood! Delightful time to spend! In the end we ate last dinner in the US at an Italian restaurant and visited the Griffith Observatory to enjoy the great night view of Los Angeles. We are now about to leave.

 
 
 
 

Day 6 May 13th
   We had some delay on our way back to Tokyo because of a volcanic eruption in Kamchatka. But thanks to the staff of ANA, we were able to arrive at Matsuyama Airport on time.
   We enjoyed this overseas trip to Los Angeles to the fullest. Thank you, America!

Globalization and Understanding different culture

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:52

   On May 1st, SG course students in the 2nd-year had a class titled “Globalization and Understanding different culture” by Mr. Kazuhiro Murakami, an associate professor of Center for International Education of Ehime University.
   He said to the students that culture is common knowledge that has been built along the long history of the country. He went on to say that no one can tell whether a certain culture is good or bad, or right or wrong, and having the right understanding about the culture is very important. He also gave them some important points to stay safe and healthy while outside Japan.
   Since some students are going on a school trip to California this May, it was a very informative and useful lecture!

City Fieldwork in Matsuyama

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:49

   On Thursday April 27th, our 1st-year students went on City Fieldwork in Matsuyama. They visited the “Birthplace of Akiyama Brothers” and “Saka-no-Ue-no-Kumo Museum”.
   In the “Birthplace of Akiyama Brothers”, students listened to the explanations by the staff about Akiyama Brothers, the famous brothers who were both excellent military officers in WW1. The students deepened their understanding about the two brothers, Yoshifuru and Saneyuki Akiyama.
   At the “Saka-no-Ue-no-Kumo Museum”, students had a chance to see the displays about Shiki Masaoka, Akiyama Brothers and their surroundings, and learned a lot.
   Two hours was too short to learn everything, but it was a meaningful fieldwork. We greatly appreciate all the members of Tokiwa Landman Organization and the staff of the “Saka-no-Ue-no-Kumo Museum” for attending our students.
