Assistant Professor Yuliya Lyamzina of FMU’s Office of International Cooperation was invited to give one of the “Science Dialogue” lectures at Fukushima High School on Tuesday, July 3.
Fukushima High School is designated as a Super Science High School (SSH) by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). In this role, Fukushima High School regularly holds Science Dialogues, at which scientists from around the world speak in English about their countries and their research activities. It gives an opportunity for students to develop their interest in scientific research and to deepen international understanding.
Dr. Lyamzina, from Ukraine, has experience working in international organizations such as United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). She introduced her own research about risk perception and communication which aims to compare reactions to the Fukushima and Chernobyl accidents among the residents.
Proceedings of the 31th Prefectural Oversight Committee Meeting for Fukushima Health Management Survey was released.
Generally, in May there are many sunny days in Fukushima prefecture and it is very pleasant to spend them outdoors.
Last weekend, the visit was to Onahama Port, located in Iwaki City.
The city is one of the biggest cities in Fukushima Prefecture.
Currently, the Iwaki city and the port have returned to its original form and are again crowded with Japanese and international tourists. The city offers variety of activities, for example, you can start the city tour visiting the fish market early morning, following by the visit to the beautiful waterfront aquarium.
If you make your way to the fish market early enough, you can taste a unique and very fresh sea urchin which will be cut and served in front of you.
In addition, we recommend you to taste a traditional meal of this country “Teishoku”, which is mackerel fish, served with rice, miso soup and radish in one of many Japanese restaurants located near the port. It is very tasty.
After traditional Japanese lunch, you can enjoy a pleasant boat ride and watch or feed seagulls or you can visit the surrounding area.
Overall, Iwaki city and Onahama Port is a nice destination for the weekend trip with plenty of activities, which adults and children will enjoy.
