Fall 2010 Globalization Kobe Fieldtrip

Students from the Japan and Globalization class and special guests recently went on a fieldtrip to Kobe in search of globalization. And globalization they found: belly dancers in Kitano (see future separate post), Turkish ice cream in Nankin Machi and Halloween treats in Harbor area. Congratulations to Sam and Francesco for winning the Kobe Globalization Photo Contest - their respective photos appear below.

Here are some shots from me:

Many thanks to all fieldtrip participants. And stay tuned for the belly dancer pictures and photos of the Kobe night scene. And now the fun blogging procrastination must end and midterms must be graded... 頑張ります!
