Josh Moore, associate director of the office of international education (above), and Susan Furukawa, assistant professor of Modern Languages and Literature (Japanese, below), are in Japan this week. They checked in with the Terrarium over the weekend and shared these photos (below) from their first day in Tokyo.
Josh explains: "We went to a Buddhist temple and the new Sky Tree tower; the statue is of Saigo Takamori, the so-called 'last samurai.'
The two, who are visiting with Beloit partners in the country this week, also saw the Edo Tokyo museum, which documents the transition from the Tokugawa era to the Meiji era, to the US occupation.
Stay tuned for more dispatches from off campus as the week progresses.
