We could have a great view of Mitsujo Tumulus. Gifu University students asked many things about the Tumulus.

We walked around the SAKAGURA Streets. We could visit KAMOIZUMI, SHUSENKAN, and KIREI. We could see inside of the brewery, study the process of making SAKE and enjoy tasting.

Both students from the Hiroshima and Gifu Universities could establish friendly ties among them within the short time available.

And the international students of the Hiroshima University requested the International Student Centre to organize the same kind of tour that the Gifu University had organized for its international students to travel in Japan.
