A Look at Japan

A group of UW-Green Bay students and their faculty and staff guides returned in June from a three-week study tour of Japan. The summer course Arts and Culture in Japan was led by theatre Prof. Kaoime Malloy of the Arts and Visual Design faculty with the assistance of Kristy Aoki of the Office of International Education. From exploring ancient temples, mist-shrouded mountains, and pristine coastline or catching a ride on the world’s fastest train into a modern metropolis, students found a range of cultural experiences.
