Later the international students went to National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, which introduces state-of-the-art technology in Japan. The museum had permanent, and special exhibits where the students enjoyed a hands-on experience in technology including a demonstration of ‘ASHIMO’, a Humanoid Robot.
Their last stop was at ‘Hama-rikyu Gardens’, Japanese-style gardens nestled in the middle of Tokyo. Despite its location, the peaceful Japanese gardens made everyone forget the noise of the city.
The students also enjoyed Matcha green tea and sweets in the teahouse. It was so delicious that many of them asked the staffs how to brew Matcha green tea.
