Field Trip (Himeji, Hiroshima, Miyajima)


We had our annual Himeji-Hiroshima-Miyajima field trip the first week of October.

in front of Himeji Castle


An AKP tradition?! Jumping in front of Himeji Castle!

On the second day, we visited Hiroshima.

At the monument to the victims of the atomic bomb


You can see the A-bomb dome in the background.


Ms Keiko Ogura, an atomic bomb survivor, talked with us.


We made our way to Miyajima. The students’ first traditional Japanese dinner!


Unfortunately, Day 3 was rainy…


Did you all have fun?




There was a taiko show at the hotel. Nguy-san and Matsuda-san both tried playing!
