CCSC Study Tours Comments Off on Tokyo Historical and Cultural Exchange Tour

Co-organized by the departments of History, Chinese History and Business, Accounting and Financial Studies (BAFS), the exchange tour extended the students’ horizons by providing them with a fruitful and meaningful itinerary.

The participants were required to find their own routes and ways to reach different destinations. Adventuring around Yokohama and Tokyo, they appreciated the work of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the “great revolutionary forerunner”, when he escaped to Japan and also his historical legacy. They also got to know why the Yasukuni Shrine is at the centre of an international controversy.

Last but not least, the exchange with the students from Waseda University and kimono experiences familiarized the participants with the virtues of Japanese culture, tradition and lifestyle.
