SSIP2014-DAY14 [2014年07月08日(火)]

SSIP14日目は、箱根を観光しました。芦ノ湖を横目で見ながら最初に大涌谷に行き、噴煙地で実際に火山活動を見たり、名物の黒たまごを食べたりしました。黒たまごは見た目が黒いので留学生は食べないかなと思いましたが、”寿命が延びるらしい”という説明をしたら日本人学生と一緒に楽しんで食べてました(*^▽^*)その後、箱根関所でランチを食べフリータイムを過ごしました。フリータイムでは、パンダの乗り物に乗ったりお土産屋さんで日本らしいお土産を買ったりしたようです。
箱根の観光を楽しんだ後は東京へ戻り、世田谷美術館で行っている企画展と環境デザイン学科・服飾デザインマネジメントコースとのコラボ企画のファッションショーを見学しました。ファッションショーには坂東学長もいらしていて、留学生も坂東学長と一緒に楽しみました。


One-day Trip to Hakone
After spending two nights at Tomei Gakurin, the students packed up their bags and were on the move once again! In the morning the students went to Owakudani, “Great Boiling Valley,”a volcanic valley with active sulphur vents and hot springs. Legend has it that if you eat Kuro-tamago, a local speciality, you will live an extra seven years! This special egg is boiled in the hot springs and it turns black and smells slightly sulphuric. Some of our students were adventurous enough to try it!

After, we stopped for lunch at a restaurant right on the shore of Lake Ashi. Students ate their lunches and then were given free time to explore the local shops and surroundings.

For the afternoon, our international students were kind enough to attend a fashion show put on by our very own Showa Women’s University college students. It was great opportunity for our international students to see the talent of other girls around their own age from a different country.

After the fashion show, we then made our way to our second accommodation of the program,Weekly Dormy Inn!
