The group experienced Japanese traditional culture when they went on a tour of Kamakura and Enoshima on July 5th. In the afternoon, they stopped by at Wagae-jima, the oldest harbor facility in Japan, and Professor Hitoshi Yamada explained the history of it.
On the last day of the 10 day program, the students made presentations in Japanese and English, sharing what they had learned and achieved. Their visit was short yet productive as they were satisfied with their firsthand experiences of learning a variety of the Japan’s advanced technology, and culture. Some of the students expressed their wishes to enter YNU learning more about the advanced technology. This program turned out to be very significant as we were able to deepen cultural exchange and understanding between Mongolia and Japan by way of meeting with many people who supported the program.
