On August 1st and 2nd, a kids’ group tour called "Prince Pickles and Miss Parsley Tour" was held at the MOD. It is part of "Children’s Kasumigaseki Study Tour," an annual summer event organized by Japanese ministries and agencies, and the event provides a good opportunity for children to visit Japanese governmental organizations and learn about their activities.

Approx. 200 elementary and junior high school students and their guardians participated in this two-day tour. The content of the tour included defense lectures, visiting State Minister of Defense, flag signaling, observing defense equipment and a training of the Honor Guard.

Participants asked State Minister of Defense Yamamoto questions such as "most enjoyable experience of work" and "how to become a JSDF personnel."

The tour was participated by many people from distant prefectures. Some commented that they had a great time visiting the MOD.
