Early in June, 2009, members of challenger organizers BEPPoo!! received a certificate from Guinness stating that the record challenge by APU students from 57 countries and regions to get "the most nationalities in a spa at the same time" had been certified.
The sauna challenge was planned and carried out by APU students who run the Beppu information portal site "BEPPoo!!" under the theme of "No Border, Naked Body, Now Brake". On the day, the record was achieved by students from 57 countries and regions who crammed into the sauna in their bathing costumes.
There are currently students studying at APU from 87 different countries and regions and we are proud of our number national 1 position in terms of numbers of international students (under graduate). This Guinness record achievement is a result of the utilization of the uniqueness of APU.
HAYASHI Hidetora (APM4, Japan) planner and representative of the project held the certificate as he spoke of his happiness, "We received initial certification from Guinness in February and the certificate has finally arrived. I hope to spread the joy with everyone who participated in this challenge including graduates and exchange students who have since returned home."
