Spring 2009 Globalization Kobe Fieldtrip
Another new semester, another Globalization class fieldtrip to Kobe. Kobe never gets old and students make new and different discoveries of globalization in this wonderful city. Check out the pictures below to see a sample of what this semester's participating students experienced.

Is that the Québec flag?
Some Japanized "Parisian-style" set
Greek clothes shop
Is that a Dutch windmill?
Reminds me my family summer trips to New England's seaside!
Some American hippie culture?
A shop with a French-sounding name
Cowboys and Indians!

Introducing students to the Lock Up (It's a prison themed izakaya).
This is how the Globalization prof would like to spend his retirement days...
Where else but in Kobe could you buy fruit directly from the Womb?
The Bruce Lee shop in Chinatown is always a must to visit...
...this time they were selling breasts, 395 yen each (apparently no discount by the pair).
Another perfect example of globalization/glocalization: introducing the Kobe Burger!
Former students who happened to be in Kobe on the same day.

"I scream, you scream, we all scream for...globalization!"
Yes, another fun and successful trip to Kobe.
