Exploring Culture, Peacebuilding, and the Legacies of War

Cancelled for May Term 2022

Explore the history and cultures of Japan in Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Osaka. We will visit important historical and cultural sites; learn about diverse Japanese perspectives about peace and war; and dip into fun and fascinating aspects of Japanese cuisine, history, entertainment, art, religion, and culture. From bullet trains to the Manga Museum and Bamboo Forest, Moravian students will participate in world-class opportunities to explore firsthand the continuing legacy, history, and urgent contemporary questions regarding nuclear weapons, war, and peace.
