Hiroshima Field Trip 2008, Central Connecticut State University
22 students from Central Connecticut State University (CCSU), USA, visited Hiroshima as part of a field trip on Wednesday, June 4 and Friday, June 6, 2008. This was the second field trip by CCSU to Hiroshima after their first trip last year.
This field trip is a part of the Study Abroad program offered by CCSU, through which the participants can learn about Japanese culture and peace issues during their visits to Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Kyoto, Nara and Tokyo.
They learned much about the reality of the atomic bombings through various activities including a visit to peace related facilities and buildings exposed to the A-bomb, listening to the testimony of an A-bomb survivor and a lecture at the Radiation Effects Research Foundation.
