We had fun time looking around the exhibitions of models and old materials related to Edo and Tokyo.
This is the report by Mr. Heap (TIT student from Vietnam, a person on the right of the photo) Mar. 5, 2017.
We visited Yokohama Disaster Risk Reduction Learning Center on Mach 5 (Sun) as a social event. We experienced artificial earthquake, fire extinguishing drill, and training of escaping from smoke.
Of course we have fire extinguishers in Vietnam, but I have never used it. It was a very interesting experience. I could meet not only Japanese, but Chinese, Koreans, and Indonesians. We took many photographs. I enjoyed the event very much.
I want to visit this facility again with my friends. Thank you very much.

"Romantic Memory" Zhang Yihui
We, classmates of Tana Japanese class, went to Yokohama on Nov. 27.
When we enjoyed walking in the park, we came across a pond surrounded by trees.
There, children were enjoying on the grass.
After that, we got on Marine Shuttle together.
I thought “What a beautiful sea it is!”
We enjoyed drinking coffee and taking pictures on the ship. We saw various beautiful views from the ship.
The ginkgo trees along Ohdori street was very beautiful.
It made me feel romantic.
This will go down as a good memory in me.
