Later the international students went to Trick Art Museum Nikko. After enjoying the mysterious world of art, they arrived at hotel, and relaxed in the hot spring.

On the 2nd day of the tour, the group visited World Heritage Nikko Toshogu Shrine. Unfortunately, the Yomeimon-gate wasn’t available for observation due to renovation work, but the students were able to take a lot of pictures of gorgeous, and solemn shrine pavilions.

At the last stop, the international students went to Mashiko Pottery Cooperative Selling Center, and experienced making potteries. All the students were doing their best to make hand-made potteries. The potteries will be great souvenirs from the trip for sure.
