KANAZAWA, Ishikawa Pref. (Kyodo) A group of female college students wearing kimono and equipped with iPads have been guiding foreign tourists in Kanazawa.
More than a dozen students from Kanazawa Seiryo University were tasked with being “Omotenashi Musume” (hospitality ladies) guides using tourist information on iPads as well as their own English conversation skills in the city’s Higashi Chayagai area on weekends until the end of March.
The students’ activities are part of a hospitality project led by a local firm with the cooperation of the university.
