“These children are part of Japan’s next generation and we want to make sure we play a role however small, in Japan’s future.”

“To offer a respite from the ordeals they have faced, we wish to offer them hope and enjoyment through memories that will last a lifetime. These children are part of Japan’s next generation and we want to make sure we play a role however small, in Japan’s future.”

Chisun Hotel Ueno and its online reservation partner, Trust International, worked together to invite 14 students from grades two to six to visit Tokyo and participate in a fun-filled, educational tour geared especially for children.

Through a donation of one million yen from a group of Trust International employees, Chisun Hotel Ueno planned the exciting event created with the help of the non-profit organization, Living Dreams Japan.

The students stayed at Chisun Hotel Ueno for 3-days, 2-nights from August 22-24 with complimentary accommodation and meals.

They experienced and enjoyed many activities, including a visit to Ueno Zoo, KidZania Tokyo, bowling, and a music workshop conducted and special mini-concert performed by the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra.
