Rady Returns to Japan

For the second consecutive year, a contingent of Rady students spent their spring break touring Japan and indulging in local culture. The trip comprised eleven students and more than twice as many sites and company visits as the previous year. The schedule included visits to Tokyo, Kyoto and Hiroshima as well as tours of Toyota, Toshiba, Canon, and Perseus Proteomics headquarters. At Aoyama Gakuin University, the group also attended a lecture on Japanese consumer behavior.

The Rady contingent didn’t stop there. They also went on to visit a sake factory and natural hot springs in the snow covered northern region. The trip ultimately finished with a pre-dawn visit to Tsukiji, an outdoor commercial market through which 87% of the world’s marine products move. It was fresh sushi for breakfast at 5:00 am.

This year’s trip was principally organized by Turner Jenkins and supported by the International Business Club as well as Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo.
