Your travel itinerary could look like...
- After settling into your accommodation, tuck into a welcome banquet of local specialties and fuel yourselves with delicious food. You’ll need it for the days of exploration ahead of you!
- Take a guided tour of the House of Councillors for a lesson in law and legislation. Spend the rest of the day exploring busy Tokyo, taking in all of the sights, sounds and smells of the metropolis.
- Students will get down to the nitty-gritty with a visit to the fast-paced Tokyo Stock Exchange. The tour can include insightful lectures and an interactive stock-trading game – perfect for getting those business brains whirring!
- Later, wander through the Akihabara district, famous for its plethora of electronic shops. Your students can see all of the latest gadgets from international tech giants and gaze in wonder at the iconic neon signs of the area.
- Get up close and personal with a human-scale robot at the Honda Welcome Plaza – not something you get to do every day! Students will also see a wide range of sustainable and modern automobiles here – a treat for anyone with an interest in the automotive industry. After a bite to eat, your group can learn how to make miso and sushi in a Japanese cooking class.
- Wake up bright and early and catch the bullet train to Kyoto. Here, you’ll sample the local culture by heading to Nijo Castle and Kinkakuji Temple. Explore the city, which is renowned for its many Buddhist temples, gardens, imperial palaces and Shinto shrines, before spending the night here.
- After an early train back to Tokyo, visit Japan’s National Museum of Emerging Science and try out technology that’s set to shape the future. Maybe it’ll give your students some ideas for their own revolutionary products! Afterwards, take a trip to Toyota’s Mega Car Theme Park to gain more insight into Japan’s car culture, including lessons on hybrid cars and their impact on the economy.
- Savour one last breakfast in the city, letting your students reflect on everything that they’ve learned over the past week. The combination of traditional culture, modern business and tourism makes this trip an unforgettable one – and hopefully one that will inspire entrepreneurs in the making!
