    We gathered at Tokyo Station at 9 AM and left for Hiroshima by Shinkansen departing at 9:30. The Tokaido

    Shinkansen opening at the time of the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, students were showing an interest in the

    history and technology.

    Arrived at Hiroshima station past 2 PM, we took a bus from there and moved to Miyajimaguchi. Inside the bus,

    the tour guide introduced the history of Hiroshima and the professional sports team based in Hiroshima. In

    Leaving the hotel at 9 AM, we went to the Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims

    and heard about the experiences from the A - bomb victim” Hibakusya”. From the students, questions such as

    "What should we inherit in the future?" were asked, and the lecturer gave a strong and impressive message

    that "I would like you to take your country what you've heard today, and want you to spread it.”

    After that, students visited the Peace Memorial Museum and learned about the history of Hiroshima as a

    bombed city, the history of Japan and the misery of the atomic bomb.

    After that, we prayed to the memorial monument and visited the A - Bomb Dome.

    In the afternoon, we went to the Mazda Stadium and learned about Japanese professional baseball business

    in recent years.

    In the morning students visited the port area of Kobe. After climbed Kobe Port Tower, learned about the damage

    of the Great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake at the Kobe Port Earthquake Memorial Park. In the afternoon, visited

    the Kitano Ijinn-kan (former foreign residences) with the guidance of the volunteer guide. We learned about the

    history of Kobe, the history of Japan after the opening of the country to the world in the late Edo period, the

    relationship with other countries at the time (and its influence up to today), and so on.

    Day 4: 7th February, Tuesday Kobe → Tokyo

    Weather: Cloudy

    Leaving the hotel at 9 AM and visited “ASICS sports engineering laboratory”. After visiting the outside laboratory

    area with the guide of Mr. Masako Kosaka of TIAS (1st batch student), went to the laboratory. In the laboratory,

    students observed the latest equipment related to product development of ASICS and learned about the

    company's latest technology.

    In the afternoon, moved to the Kobe Regatta and Athletic Club and got a lecture the theme of "Kobe and Modern

    Sports - Popularization by Europeans and Americans and Popularization among Hanshin" by Mr. Masamitsu

    Takagi, Secretary General of the Kobe Foreign Residents Study Group.

    It seems to be a very meaningful day for students to learn about the state-of-the-art of Japanese sport science

    and to learn about the influx of modern sports in Japan and its social background.

    5. Summary

    The study tour of this time was very meaningful for the TIAS 2nd batch students, and even so for professors and

    researchers. In Hiroshima, students learned about war, the misery of the atomic bomb, and seems to have

    deeply thought about the meaning of learning in Japan, the only atomic bombed country, the possibility of sport

    for peace building. In Kobe, students learned about state-of-the-art of Japanese sport science and Japanese

    sport culture.

    As an issue, students did not have enough preliminary knowledge of history of Hiroshima / Kobe , sports history

    in Japan, and Japanese professional and sports situation. From next time on, it was felt that there should be

    an increase in the time of pre-learning and be able to be having a systematic learning chance. In addition,

    students want to touch on the history of sport in Japan, the situation of professional sports, etc., in the ordinary

    lecture.
