Field Trip to Hiroshima
One highlight of the UC program is the field trip to the Hiroshima area to study Japanese history and the peace movement in modern Japan. The trip comes early in the term, so it also gives students a chance to settle as a group. The itinerary details may vary from term to term, but the main activities include visits to: the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Museum; Kure; and the Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima Island. Other possible activities include meetings with survivors of the Hiroshima bombing.
