The 2nd Pacific Islands and West Indies Students Invitation Program

The 2nd Pacific Islands and West Indies Students Invitation Program

On January 14th, students from the Pacific and West Indies took a day trip to Kamakura as part of the Pacific and West Indies Students Invitation Program, jointly organized by Sophia University. The sixteen participants arrived in Japan on Jan 4th. During their stay in japan, they are not only expected to gain basic knowledge about Japan but also to enhance their understanding about the current situation in Japan. It is expected that students will utilize their experience for resolving environmental issues that small-island countries are currently facing now.


During the trip to Kamakura, the students visited many famous tourist locales such as Hase temple, Tsuruoka temple, and Kencyo temple, they were particularly intrigued by the stories about Kamakura, told them by a tour guide. As they visited a famous statue of the Bhudda, they were very astonished about the structure and its size. At lunch, the participants split into groups consisting of students from the Pacific, the Caribbean and Japan. Each group enjoyed their time in Kamakura. They shopped, ate Japanese foods and did extra sightseeing. The experience was a good opportunity for them to understand Japanese history and culture.
