June 29th, Monday

Free Day
SSIP students had a free day on Monday, and many of them went out to explore! Everyone spread out all throughout Tokyo, with some going to Akihabara and Shinjuku and others going to the Imperial Palace, temples, and gardens! It seems as though Tokyo is becoming a more familiar city for everyone!

June 30th, Tuesday

Japan Studies: Lecture ③ Japanese Art
After a restful and fun free day on Monday, the students came back to Showa for a full day of lectures! The first lecture was on Japanese art, where students learned about the symbolic importance of flowers and seasons in Japanese culture. Professor Tanimura took the time to explain the meaning of symbol and how they are incorporated into contemporary Japanese life and art. Overall, the students learned about the appreciation of nature and its significance to Japanese life.

Japan Studies: Lecture ④ Kabuki
After a quick lunch, the students joined Professor Oyatsu from the Department of History and Culture who gave a lecture on traditional Kabuki. She explained to the participants about the history of Japanese dance and the mechanics behind the kabuki stage. This included explanations of a spinning stage, a runway and sound effects. Additionally, Professor Oyatsu described how the art is performed only by adult males and the significance behind different facial expressions, poses, and special effects. Some old clips of a kabuki play were also shown to help the students understand the elaborate nature of each performance, and two graduated students of Showa gave a presentation about kabuki make-up.

Japan Studies: Lecture ⑤ Japanese Pop Culture
For the final lecture, the students dove into the world of anime and manga by learning about its unique history and its rise to global popularity! The lecture included some unique genres of manga comic books brought by lecturer Yu Shigematsu, who is himself a huge anime and manga fan! Professor Shigematsu explained about the development of the famous Ghibli Studio, which was a great way for the students to think about Ghibli before their trip to the museum! Along with getting to learn about the history of anime film, the students learned about popular themes and tropes of anime, and how these themes reflect common themes found in everyday Japanese society.

 June 27th, Saturday

Today was a cross cultural workshop day, with the students presenting about similarities and differences in education across numerous countries all around the world. Along with the Japanese students, the international students grouped together to compare their school schedules, and along the way were able to present how these differences defined their culture.

Afterward, the students went with their homestay family to stay for a weekend. Below are some of their experiences:

Homestay 1: Naomi from the United States
When I met up with my host sister Faryon, she was very kind and asked me places I’d like to go and where I’d been. We went off to Harajuku after that to the famous Takeshita Street, which was more pink than I had imagined! We did the Purikura photo booths which were super high-tech, then we left to get back to her apartment in Hiro-o. Her mother is Korean, so she made us Sangyetang – a kind of chicken soup. Then we went to something I had been wanting to try – the Japanese Bathhouse. It was really great, and my host mother washed my back! It was a very relaxing experience. We left after about an hour and walked around Hiro-o at night. I saw the Tokyo Tower in the distance, all lit up. And we sat in a park and just chatted for a while. When I got back to their house I met their father who also love to sew just like I do. He told us how to get to some fabric and craft stores. He also gave me some nice needles and a thimble and showed me some sewing tips.

The next day Faryon took me to a crafts store in Shinjuku and a fabric store as well. The fabric store was FIVE stories of fabric. And they had an entire section of just Japanese made textile.

After the craft and fabric stores, Faryon and I went to the Tokyo Kinokuniya! We walked across the bridge pictured above and checked out a really famous department store in Shinjuku. Afterward, Faryon took me to see the Meiji Shrine, where I had a great time! I’m very grateful to my homestay family for giving me such a great experience during my stay!

Japan Studies:Activity ② Edo-Tokyo Museum
This morning, we headed out to the Edo-Tokyo Museum, where the SSIP participants were able to learn more about the history of Tokyo. There were many interesting artifacts and relics from the past, including life-size recreations of villages, cities, and people. The exhibits were so interesting that many of the students said they didn’t have enough time to explore the whole museum! However, many of them were able to interact with the exhibits, such as carrying hanging fish baskets over their shoulders and sitting on a rickshaw! Other participants spent a good time in the souvenir shop in order to admire and buy the traditional Japanese goods that were available.

Japan Studies:Activity ③ Asakusa Sightseeing
In the afternoon, participants went to Asakusa to tour the streets and visit the historical Sensoji Temple. Ash Warren led the students on a brief tour of the temple, and afterwards the students were able to draw fortunes and pray. Others stayed near the center to breathe the incense, which is said to be able to heal any physical ailment! After visiting the temple, the students toured around the nearby streets of Asakusa, which were bustling with people. There were many shops in the streets, including stores that had local foods, souvenirs, and traditional wear. Even though it was raining, everyone had fun exploring the streets and trying new foods!

Afterwards, the students walked a little ways to make food samples. The students were very excited for this opportunity since food sample making is a very popular activity in Japanese culture, with many restaurants using them as a way to show off their menus. With the help of the staff at the food samples store, students either a shrimp or vegetable tempura and heads of lettuce. All of the food looked so realistic, I’m sure everyone was getting hungry just looking at them!

Japan Studies :Lecture② Japanese Calligraphy

This morning began with an exciting lecture in Japanese calligraphy, where the students were allowed to practice writing different characters with the help of Japanese students. Although it was a bit difficult to follow all the strokes, the students were able to practice before writing their favorite character on calligraphy paper, which they will be able to take home!

Japan Studies : Lecture③History of Tokyo

After lunch at Sophia Cafeteria, the students attended Professor Shimoda’s lecture on the history of the city of Tokyo. The lecture consisted of many aspects of Japanese history, including the EdoPeriod, Pre-War Tokyo, and Post-War Tokyo. After learning about Tokyo’s evolution from a traditionalist city to a sprawling metropolis, many of the students expressed their desire to explore all areas of Tokyo to experience those qualities firsthand.

Aikido Practice and Demonstration

Following the lecture, the students got a chance to see the Aikido club perform a demonstration of basic aikido moves. The club advisor walked the students through some of the basic sitting and standing moves, with the club members demonstrating each of them step by step. Along with the demonstration of moves, the students were able to see a match between two of the club members, and then were given the opportunity to try out some of the moves themselves! Along with learning how to fall, the students learned some self-defense moves – in the end, it was a very interesting way to engage in Japanese martial art!

インドネシアからの留学生、ニラムさんからの感想が届きました。(2015/1/14追記)

I have always liked nature and having the experience to go mandarin picking was one of the most memorable things I have done during my stay here. The scenery surrounding the place was amazing. As the day went on, the weather cleared and I could see the sea and Mt. Fuj, albeit briefly. Following the advice given by the grounds keepers, I enjoyed my time choosing the ‘right’ trees and picking the sweetest mandarins we could find. We were given the opportunity to walk around the grounds and I had fun exploring the whole place with my friends. There were a lot of things to see, and everything was really beautiful. I am glad I joined this event, not only because of the mandarins but also the whole trip itself made for a memorable experience on my exchange. I got the chance to talk to people who I rarely talked to. I feel grateful that Showa Women’s University provides us with such events that helps us make us the best of our stay here in Japan. It will be an experience I never forget!
