Students visit performing arts theater and industry plant facility in Japan

The student delegates had the most enjoyable morning learning about traditional Japanese performing arts at the Ohori Park Noh Theater. After viewing snippets of a Noh performance, the delegates were graced with the presence of a Kyogen sensei with 20 years of experience. He first explained the essence of Kyogen and demonstrated the elaborate actions. Everyone was then encouraged to break free from their shells as they joined in acting during the short Kyogen workshop that followed, bringing about an air of fun and laughter to all the delegates.

The afternoon’s industry session at Hibiki LNG Terminal took a more serious tone. One of the company’s managers first explained the system and discussed the purpose of having to liquify natural gas. The delegates then took a tour of the large facility from the control room, to the rooftop, to seeing the massive tanks and pipes firsthand.
