Unique 'Discover Ajimu Seminar' held for CAP Students

Jul 5, 2007

The 'Go Go! THP – Discover Ajimu Seminar' for CAP-THP students was held in Ajimu Town, Usa City, Oita Prefecture on Saturday, June 30, 2007. This seminar was introduced this academic year for students studying under the Tourism and Hospitality Program (THP) offered as part of the Crossover Advanced Program (CAP).

The 'academic camp', which incorporated various lectures on experimental tourism and green tourism, was mainly held in the field and led by local public servants from Ajimu Town. Guided by locals, the students had the opportunity of looking firsthand at tourism in Ajimu, and in groups were able to make suggestions for improvements. It was a great opportunity for the students to interact directly with people working in their field of study.

APU's THP students can look forward to more opportunities in the future to participate in such programs, where they can obtain exposure to the industry and the real world.
