Spring Tour for University Students at the SDF Base and Camp

Spring Tour for University Students at the SDF Base and Camp

From February 22nd to 24th, the spring tour program for university and graduate students took place. During the program, the participants visited GSDF facilities for three days and two nights to gain firsthand experience of the life in the SDF.

This year, a total of 27 university and graduate students participated in the spring tour program. They visited GSDF Camp Omiya (Saitama Prefecture) and Camp Asaka (Tokyo). Their activities include: trial training (basic training and ranger training); observation of equipment; test-ride of helicopter; 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.
