Travel to Japan
Themes and interests

 

 

The Denver Takayama Sister City Committee (DTSCC) tries to arrange one or two adult trips to Japan each year.

These trips help us to raise funds to support our high school exchange program while at the same time addressing our mission to increase understanding and friendship between residents of the Denver and Takayama metropolitan areas.

We recognize that international travel is expensive, and so on this page we are focusing on how to give the most value we can on your trips: What interests you most in a possible trip to Japan? Below we have a list of possible themes for trips, and we would like to find out which of these would appeal to your interests for a visit to Japan.

Please fill in your name and email, then indicate your level of interest in each theme, and click on the "submit" button.

Note that if you submit this form a second time, it will replace your previous values - unless you specify 'Not interested' for all themes - then any previous request will be deleted and your record will be removed from our database.

Note: this does not commit you to go on any trip; it's just an attempt to choose themes of most interest.

 

We will give each theme a score based on the degrees of interest and then rank them. Then we will attempt to schedule trips with the highest scores.

 

If you have any difficulties, please contact me, Steve Comstock, at steve@trainersfriend.com and I will fix the problem.
