A visit to an iodine production plant, and also a natural gas production plant, was organized the first day.


We got a very interesting introduction to the topic at the iodine chemistry plant, followed by a guided tour at the premises.


The first day also included a stop at a beach. Only the Swedes thought it was a good idea to get into the water :-)

There was a festival in Narita the last evening.

After enjoying the festival, we went to Narita's best eel resturant (Jerome Waser, Thomas Wirth, Berit Olofsson, Tatsuo Kaiho, Yasuyuki Kita, Kazuaki Ishihara).

The group enjoyed a hike up to the top of Mount Fuji after the conference.
