Social Program

We recommend you to participate in Excursions!
We recommend you to participate in Excursions through September 25 (Mon) to September 28 (Thu).
Every Excursion, with a reasonable fee (ca. 55 USD) including a Japanese style lunch, visits attractive places, which are difficult to get by yourself (see the Social Program page). Please remember that you should look after your lunch (except for Friday) for yourself, if you do not participate in the excursions.

Where actually we visit in Excursions?
We plan to go to "Shiga Afternoon Tour" on September 25 (Mon). We will finalize our plans for the other days, according to your choices.
