Housing and Meals
In Tokyo for the first two weeks, students will share double-rooms at a Japanese business-style hotel with all amenities including internet. They will share triple-rooms at a traditional Japanese-style hotel for the last three weeks of the seminar, following the one-week-long excursion to Sendai and Kamaishi. Both Tokyo hotels are located in the Hongo district in close proximity to public transportation and the University of Tokyo.
A welcome dinner and a farewell dinner are planned for the group. Breakfast is included at the hotels in Tokyo, but all other meals will be at the student’s expense. Students are welcome to use the University’s campus dining facilities, which offer reduced-priced meals.
