【Sign Up Period: Oct. 8th – Oct. 30th, 9:00am】ICC ONLINE Theme Cafe: Let’s explore the charm of the railway with Waseda Railway Club!(Nov. 5)


All aboard!

Hello everyone, during this quarantine do you miss the time you were able to take the train?
International students, were you shocked by the spider-net like railway route map the first time you arrived in Tokyo?
As you know, railways can show us the features of a country or a region via different elements such as the trains, stations, routes and announcements.

This time, the ICC has invited the members from the Waseda Railway Club (WRC) which is an officially recognized university club with a near 70-year history. We are going to reexplore the charm of the railway with them.
It will be a great chance to talk casually with each other while learning the history and interesting stories about the railway. We hope you can feel closer to and have a deeper interest in the railway after this event.

Also, there will be international students making presentations to introduce the railways in their home countries.

Maybe learning some new things about the railway will give you a thirst to learn more.

No matter if you are a railway fan, you love travelling, or even if you are not familiar with the railway, you can all enjoy the contents we have prepared. Everyone is welcome!

These 90 minutes you spend with us will give you the urge to take the train tomorrow and have your own railway trip.
Those who always get lost in the railway maze should definitely not miss this!

All participants will get an ICC x WRC collaboration smartphone and laptop wallpaper as a gift.

Please join us and let’s feel the charm of the railway together!
