Report: "Quiz Rally 'Kyoto tour -Arashiyama-' " (presented by SIED)

Updated Nov. 1, 2021
On Saturday, October 16, 2021, Quiz Rally Kyoto Tour ~ Arashiyama~ was conducted by SIED, and a total of 13 people including six local students and seven international students joined us!

This event aims to promote international exchanges and understanding of different cultures. During the event, participants were divided into small groups with SIED staff and strolled around the famous places in Arashiyama to solve the quizzes created by SIED.

There are mainly five famous places in Arashiyama: 1) Tenryuji which is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 2) Togetsukyo Bridge, 3) Kimono Forest, 4) Bamboo Grove, 5) Nonomiya Shrine. Participants were able to learn about each place by seeking for the correct answers to the quizzes and the guidebook made by SIED staff which contains explanations and anecdotes about these famous places helped participants to solve the quizzes and learn about each place in Arashiyama. In addition, local students, who are Japanese native speakers explained the contents of the guidebook in an easy-to-understand way for international students. Also, international students told local students about some famous places in their home country, which let us enjoyed international exchanges even more.

The time set for the quiz rally was 2 hours and 30 minutes, and when the limit was reached, the ranking was announced. At the moment of the announcement, the first-place team was filled with bright smiles and surprises, and the other teams smiled bitterly. They were a little different, but everyone were smiling. We were glad that they were also happy with the prizes we prepared. Even the event was over, the participants were exchanging their contact information and hanging out together, and that was impressive.

Due to the state of emergency, we were unable to carry out the events as we planned in the spring semester. This event was also postponed but was finally held six months later. It's been a long time since the smiles and the scene of interactions between the participants could be seen, and it was really heartwarming!

SIED will continue to hold many events you can interact internationally and make wonderful encounters and connections under COVID-19 infection prevention. We look forward to your participation♪
