On the day of the event

Before the show started

On the day, many customers were seated all the way up to the second floor, and many of the students who were the target audience for this event also attended.

When the event began, the performers appeared on stage and engaged in some free talk as an opening act.

Afterwards, each comedy duo performed their material, with the audience erupting in laughter throughout.

After enjoying the material, the event will be followed by a segment planned by members of the Kyoto Student Public Relations Club, where university students will have a consultation session and an introduction to student groups in Kyoto.

At the consultation session, problems that had been submitted in advance by the public were taken up, with public relations staff acting as judges and the comedians being asked to think of ways to solve them.

The event featured a variety of interesting advice and the opportunity to hear stories from the comedians’ school days.

Advice sessions for university students

After the consultation session, we moved on to a section introducing unique student groups in Kyoto.

The following five groups were featured in this event:

 ・Kyoto Kabaddi Circle Kamodi

 ・Kansai Intercollegiate “Quidditch” Circle KYOTO LILA C FOXES

 ・Ritsumeikan Double Dutch Club dig up treasure

 ・Kyoto University Mölkky Circle Ankka

 ・Doshisha Hero Show Club

After each group introduced themselves, the comedians had the opportunity to experience their activities together.

There were some sports that we don’t usually get to see, and the audience seemed to be cheering on the performers and enjoying the excitement together.

In the hero show, there was an unexpected twist when the comedian playing the villain defeated the hero, and the entire venue was filled with laughter.

This was our first collaborative event with Yoshimoto Gion Kagetsu in five years, and thanks to everyone at Yoshimoto Gion Kagetsu, the comedians, and the student groups, it was a huge success.

In the event survey, we received a lot of positive feedback, such as “The content was substantial” and “It was an event that students could easily participate in, so I hope they hold more of these events.”

For the PR club members involved in this event, being able to bring something they had planned to life in this way seemed to help them grow and gain confidence, and it was a great learning opportunity for the Kyoto Student PR Club as well.

The official website of the Kyoto Student Public Relations Club, “Kotokare”, has also published an event report article written by members of the club, so please be sure to take a look.

2023 Gakumachi collaboration project Gakumachi NEWS!

[Activity introduction] Doshisha University, Ritsumeikan University, etc. Kyoto Student Theater Festival Executive Committee

On Sunday, September 10th, I visited the “Kyoto Student Theater Festival 2023”!

It was held in the same Yosho district of Sakyo Ward as last year, and a special outdoor stage shaped like a chrysalis, the symbol of the Kyoto Student Theater Festival, caught the attention of people passing by.

The Kyoto Student Theater Festival will be held for a long period of time from September 9th (Saturday) to September 16th (Saturday) (with one day off in between), and is a large-scale event with nine participating organizations. Last year, a wide range of people came to see the play, but this year, the second year it has been held in this location, due to the location’s well-established location and the level of publicity of the event, there were not enough seats in the audience. It was super packed.

The planning and management of such large-scale events is entirely carried out by students.
This time, Kyoto Student Public Relations Department has written an article about the chairman of the Kyoto Student Theater Festival Executive Committee, “The appeal of students mainly by students.”

Please take a look at the interview article! ! !

[Activity Introduction] Otani University Otani University And House

On Wednesday, October 18th, we visited the activities of “Otani University And House”!

The main area of activity is the Nakagawa School District located in the northern part of Kita Ward, Kyoto City. The Nakagawa school district is a production area for Kitayama cedar, but in recent years, as the population ages, it has become difficult to pass on traditional forestry practices, and the area is losing its vitality. is. As one of our initiatives, we are producing and selling a craft beer called “Kyoto Nakagawa Manma Beer!”.

The “Manmacha” used in beer is a tea that has been cultivated in the Nakagawa school district, and is said to be close to older types of tea, and is said to be a slightly bitter and flavorful tea. They will be manufactured with the residents, and subsequent beer manufacturing and sales will be sold online and online through the cooperation of welfare offices.
This time, I visited Otani University to see the process of pasting labels on Manma Beer bottles.
By this work, there is a work process of picking, sorting, steaming and roasting the tea, and then requested for brewing. According to Mr. Dehara of Otani University’s And House, the taste changes depending on how the tea is roasted, so it is difficult to maintain a consistent quality each year.

Attaching labels (long labels!) to about 200 bottles one by one is a difficult task that requires patience, but with everyone’s cooperation, the bottles with labels affixed one after another are completed. I felt the greatness of teamwork.
I think the joy that the things we have created by ourselves become products and are sold at stores is great.

Through the purchase of beer, the proceeds from the tea leaves will be returned to local welfare activities in the Nakagawa area. At Otani University And House, we go to the Nakagawa area every month and engage in activities such as quizzes, brain training, and other activities to interact with the residents.

I’m looking forward to selling “Mamma Beer” again this year! As for the taste, it has a fluffy tea flavor at first, with less beer bitterness. It seems to be easy for women to drink as well.

[Activity Introduction] Kyoto Seika University “City, People and Music” Seminar

10/21 (Sat) I visited the [Ichijoji Festival Autumn Festival] where the “City, People, and Music” seminar held a workshop!  

Speaking of Ichijoji,

・The image of “ramen” is too strong, and other attractions are not conveyed.

・There is a difference in attitude between long-time residents and those who have recently moved in.

This issue emerged from a survey conducted among shopkeepers in Ichijoji.                             We want to solve such problems and revitalize regional exchanges! In addition to this idea, we held a workshop based on the desire to leverage the strengths of the “City, People, and Music” seminar, which has many students majoring in musical expression, and promote interaction in the local area by allowing people to come into contact with music. That means I have decided to do it.

It was a crisp autumn day, and Ichijoji Park, the venue for the event, was crowded with people from the morning. Many families with small children came to see the event’s many activities, including food stalls, fair corners, stage events, and workshop events. Later organizers announced that there were approximately 3,000 people in attendance.  

In the seminar workshop “City, People, and Music”, “Let’s have fun creating and playing with sounds together,” 4 The program involves students making musical instruments (a kalimba made from a hairpin, a flute made from a straw, a bracelet made by putting beads inside a tube, and a drum made from a paper tube and balloon) and enjoying playing with the instruments. It was a great success with parents and children enjoying playing musical instruments. It means that the material, shape and size of the ingredients, such as the ingredients from injuries or accidental ingestion, and so that they do not get tired so that they are easy to make, have been repeatedly prototyped. As a result of these efforts, on the day of the event, while I was interviewing the representative, Mr. Ogawa, children kept coming to the workshop, and it was so successful that I had to interrupt the interview each time.

In addition to holding workshops, the “City, People, and Music” seminar also participates in garbage pickup activities at Ichijoji Temple. There, they are also deepening their interactions with local people.

Please continue to work hard to revitalize Ichijoji! ! !

The course name will also be changed as follows.


[Program name]

2023 Internship Program “Long-term Project Course” project presentation was held.

The University Consortium Kyoto Internship Program “Long-Term Project Course” is a program where students work in teams on themes and issues presented by their host institution for approximately five months starting in mid-June.

At the project presentation on the final day of the lecture, held on Saturday, November 11th, six project teams reported on the culmination of their activities and shared their experiences from each project.

During the review comment time, we received warm messages fromthe hosts and the coordinators in charge, making it a perfect time for the final lecture.

We hope that the students will use the confidence and awareness they gained from this valuable project experience for the rest of their university lives.

We would like to express our gratitude to all of our host institutions for their efforts and cooperation for the growth of our students.
We would be happy if the results of our students’ activities would be meaningful to the host organization.
