Spring Tour for University Students at the SDF Base and Camp

Spring Tour for University Students at the SDF Base and Camp

From March 9th to 11th, the spring tour program for university and graduate students took place. During the program, the participants visited MSDF facilities for three days and two nights to gain firsthand experience of the life in the SDF.

This year, a total of 35 university and graduate students participated in the spring tour program. They visited MSDF Takeyama and Yokosuka Districts (Kanagawa Prefecture). Their activities include: trial training (basic training, flag signaling, knot tying, and cutter training); cruise experience; ship tour; facility tour; and discussion with SDF personnel. Participants said that the program deepened their understanding and they are now more interested in the activities of the MOD/SDF.

The MOD holds such program for university and graduate students twice a year in every spring and summer.
