May 19th, 2017
We invited Ms. Kazue Sato, Mr. Akihiko Kita and Ms. Mikiko Ishikawa from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries as guest lectures for our seminar. The theme was “Agricultural Problems in Yamanashi or Japan-Causes and Solutions.”
In the first period, we heard their lecture. In the second period, we thought about Japan’s agriculture through asking them a lot of questions. 1st year students had studied the agricultural problems in advance, so they asked questions and then expressed their ideas of solution. 2nd year students asked questions connected with their own research theme. Three lecturers answered all the questions kindly and thoroughly. We had such lively discussion that we felt the time had passed too quickly.
It was a very beneficial time for us. Thank you very much.

Final Proposals by the 3rd-year Students Started
Final Proposals”, the final activity of SGH research, have begun. Today, two groups made suggestions. One group has done research on “bamboo”. In the past, bamboo was used in various ways in everyday life, but these days it has been rarely used. As a result, bamboo groves have not been managed properly , and it has caused some problems. Therefore, they are suggesting that we use bamboo and bamboo groves effectively.
The other is explaining through Skype how to promote widely “Kai-salmon”, which has been cultivated in Yamanashi.

Getting advice from 2nd Year Students
Today, in the SGH activity, the 2nd year students advised the 1st year students on how to write a report. One of the 2nd year students paired up with one of the 1st year students. Each group talked about how to search the Internet and to read the date. At first, they looked nervous, but as time went by, they relaxed and made good use of the chance.
