Eco-tourism weekend • エコツーリズムな週末


On June 13, four of our 3rd-year students and our five Winchester students headed to the small village of Toho-mura in Oita for a weekend of eco-tourism. They were joining students and staff of Seinan’s tourism department. It was an intensive weekend, and included:

  • rice planting by hand 田植え体験
  • planting sweet potatoes さつま芋の苗の植えつけ体験
  • heating baths the old-fashioned way – by fire 釜戸に火をつけて五右衛門風呂を温める体験
  • a walk up the valley to see the local fire festival 地元で行われた火祭りへの参加
  • watching fire flies 蛍の鑑賞
  • a scary session in the ghost house! 肝試し
  • making and eating soba noodles 蕎麦作り体験
  • … and LOTS of healthy food and walking など実際に日本の食文化や自然に触れることで、様々な知識を深められる内容でした。
