Tatung University collaborated with Japan’s Yokote city and Digital und Meer Inc. in holding a “one-day trip” planning contest; the top four student winners will be able to spend three weeks in Yokote for free. On June 1, the three parties signed a five-year collaborative program with the aim of cultivating talent in cultural and tourism exchanges.

Lien Ssu-chi, a junior student at the Department of Applied Foreign Languages of Tatung University, said she just enrolled in a tourism Japanese course for this semester, and was lucky enough that the teacher presented them with this sensational contest. The whole class was divided into nineteen pairs and each team had to design a one-day travel plan for Yokote city. Since Lien loves winter, she planned to attend the snow cave festival, a unique local cultural event, alongside snowboarding, lake sightseeing, sweet rice wine, barbecue rice sticks and other activities. She was confident that she could win.

Another student Yang I-chien said there are still many cultural traditions in Yokote city, with which she was going to design an Akita regional custom village for travelers to experience the traditional local lifestyle. In addition, Yokote Museum of Modern Art, the planetarium and so on will be included to make the trip enjoyable for both the young and old. Student Wu Ming-che, who is an art, literature and manga enthusiast, incorporated the Yokote Masuda Manga Museum and Yojiro Ishizaka Memorial Museum and the like into the trip to give travelers an intellectual experience. Afterward, if travelers feel exhausted, they can end the day with a trip to the hot spring.

大同大學與日本橫手市、日本公司DUM合作,舉辦橫手市「一日遊」規劃競賽,優勝四名學生可免費在橫手市大玩三週。三方在六月一日簽署五年合作計畫,培育文化觀光交流人才。

應用外文系大三學生連思棋說,這學期修習「觀光日語」課程,老師便提供這項好康比賽。全班兩兩組成十九支隊伍,替橫手市規劃「一日遊」行程。因為喜歡冬天,所以鎖定當地獨特的「雪洞祭」,並搭配滑雪、遊湖、大啖甜米酒、烤米棒等,有信心奪獎。

另名學生楊宜蒨則說,橫手市在地還有許多傳統文化,將設計「秋田鄉土民俗村」在當地體驗傳統生活,搭配現代的美術館、天文館等,使行程老少咸宜。而學生吳銘哲走文青路線,熱愛漫畫的他納入「增田漫畫美術館」、石板洋次郎文學紀念館等知性巡禮,逛累了在一泡溫泉作結。
