Technical tour

We will visit the facility of Japan Environmental Storage & Safety Corporation (JESCO) at Toyota city, where old transformers and capacitors containing polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) oil are disassembled, and PCB is decomposed. After the lunch, short visit of a sightseeing place in Nagoya city.

Sightseeing tour

We will visit sightseeing places in Takayama city. You can see the historical buildings which were built in Edo period. The district was designated an area of important traditional building by the Japanese Government. Walking in Takayama city, you can feel the rich atmosphere of Japanese tradition.
