During their trip the group met with journalists in print, broadcast, online journalism to talk about and see the latest in new media technology.

Other visits included Hiroshima and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum; the Imperial Palace grounds; Mainichi Broadcasting System, a television station in Osaka; and Ryoan Temple, which has a famous Zen rock garden. At the end of the trip, the students were honored with an awards ceremony and received Roy W. Howard medallions on an evening cruise in Tokyo Bay.
