Gifu University Faculty of Education Affiliated Elementary School children became the first children participated in the school within Gifu Prefecture, and the major goals for those children to achieve were to have active exchanges with children from Shiga Prefecture and to learn a lot about the environment of the Lake Biwa.
While on board, children formed a friendship with one another through self-introductions, playing Japanese cards associated with Shiga Prefecture, dice games, etc. Governor of Shiga Prefecture, Mr. Taizo Mikazuki visited the vessel and observed children enjoying various study and recreational activities unfolded on the vessel.
