Sneak Peek #5 - Tokyo

by Sytse on September 3rd, 2018 in Blogs

The last week of Study Tour Shift will be spent in the world's most populous metropolitan area. With 39 million residents and a 2.5 trillion dollar economy, if Tokyo were a country it would be the 8th largest economy in the world. The insanity of a huge, wealthy metropolis where high-tech futurism is constantly contrasted by remnants of traditional Japan will prove to be one of the most memorable experiences of the study tour.

Sneak Peek #4 - Kyoto

After waking up well-rested after a night's stay in a Buddhist temple and with a stomach full of a traditional monk's breakfast, we will gather the group to, once again, embark on a day of travelling. We will travel to the beautiful city of Kyoto, which has been the seat of the emperor for over a thousand years, as it is the former capital of Japan.

Sneak Peek #3 - Osaka

by Sytse on August 19th, 2018 in Blogs

It seems fitting that, during a study tour themed after infrastructure, its participants experience many different modes of travel. After flying and driving by bus to Busan, the journey to our next destination, Osaka, holds two new modes of transport for the participants.
