On August 10th, 2013 JASCers explored Nagasaki in the classroom and on the street. In the afternoon, JASCers attended the Nagasaki Forum, a discussion with Dr. Tsutomu Mizota, a distiguished professor at Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies. Dr. Mizota spoke on the history and influence of Nagasaki on foreign relations, drawing from his experience in the Ministry of Education, UNESCO, UNICEF, and the United Nations. He tied his talk in with the theme of JASC 65 and addressed each roundtable topic.

After the forum, JASCers journeyed into the city of Nagasaki, touring the city with local students, many from  Nagasaki University of Foreign Studies. The delegates were split into groups, some visiting historic sites while others visited famous shopping streets or a popular game center. One of the sites visited was the beautiful Glover Garden which overlooks the skyline of Nagasaki and Nagasaki Bay.
