U Share 2023 Fall Trek Event Report

U Share Trekって?

U Share Trek is an event that provides an opportunity for students to explore their interests outside the building of U Share. There are also four benefits to Trek: Students can gain new skills, learn about different cultures, improve their resume, and have a new adventure. The event is also student with students competing for the best trek idea, and the best one will be funded up to about 50,000 JPY. This year’s trek was about exploring Japanese culture by going to Asakusa and Tokyo Sky Tree, exploring both the past and present culture of Tokyo.

U Share Nishi Waseda residents went on the first Trek tour to Asakusa. Our day began at Asakusa Shrine after we passed through the iconic Kaminarimon Gate, where we were also able to enjoy Ningyouyaki and Ichigo Daifuku.  After we were able to feel a deep connection to Japan’s rich heritage, we made our way to lunch where we indulged in traditional soba noodles. Some of us were also able to try out the duck-flavored soba noodles. Reenergized, we sought refuge from the bustling city at the Asakusa Tourist Information Center, where we were able to grab coffee while enjoying the view of the Kaminarimon Gate and the road that leads to Asakusa Shrine. The highlight was heading the observatory of Tokyo Sky Tree. Upon reaching the observatory, we were mesmerized by the night view of Tokyo since we’d never seen it from such a high location. It was also an interesting experience since we could see Tokyo Sky Tree from the dorm.

The Trek tour wasn’t just about visiting landmarks; it was about the sharing experiences. As we were traveling throughout the day, we got to know each other better and enjoyed the day. Since this was our first Trek tour, I’m looking forward to the next one and it was a nice experience holding events outside of U Share Nishi Waseda.
