Summer Tour for University Students at the JSDF Bases and Camp

The summer tour program for university and graduate students took place from August 28th to September 1st. During the program, the participants visited JSDF facilities of each service for five days and four nights to gain firsthand experience of the life in the JSDF.

This year, a total of 40 university and graduate students participated in the program. They visited JGSDF Camp Hachinohe, JMSDF Hachinohe Air Base and Ominato district, and JASDF Misawa Air Base (all in Aomori Prefecture).

Their activities include: briefings on each service; test-ride on JGSDF transport helicopter; test navigation on a patrol guided missile boat; test ride on Type 82 command communication vehicle; observation of a F-2 fighter and other defense equipment; trial training; and discussion with JSDF personnel. Students commented that they were glad that they participated in the tour and learned a lot.

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