Worldschool Pop-Up Hub--Japan

  Kobe, Japan

  Nov 7, 2023 - Nov 13, 2023

Come join us in Kobe, Japan, for a fun-filled and community-centered worldschooling gathering November 7 - 13, 2023. The Worldschool Pop-Up Hub provides super casual, budget-friendly opportunities to gather, connect with other worldschoolers, learn about the local area, instill new friendships, share your insights, and immerse in a friendly, accepting mobile community. Our activities highlight local nature, history, food, and culture... but you'll also have plenty of time to relax, get to know each other, and even stray from the itinerary to add activities that cater to the group's interests. Pop in for a few days or the full week. Join as many activities as you'd like. It's up to you! Our itinerary will include activities such as the following: * Learn about the The Great Hanshin 1995 earthquake at the Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial Park. See the scope of the damage to appreciate the city's remarkable recovery. *Experience a simulated earthquake and learn about eathquake proofing technology at The Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake Memorial & Disaster Prevention Center. * Kobe Chinatown, and its sights, sounds, smells and tastes.
