  For the study tour of June 10, 2017, Ms. Lu Ming-yun led 13 ARF interns and their parents on a discovery tour to NTU Museums and home of the Japonica rice. It was clear and sunny in Taipei on the day of the tour, and the interns and their parents were on time for the departure. At the start of the day's activities, team leader Ms. Lu Ming-yun reminded everyone about things to note and what to observe, and provided the interns some general background knowledge.

  The morning's itinerary revolved around NTU Museums. The NTU Museums, which consists of 10 museums, have been established to preserve, promote and utilize NTU's extensive collections, and use them for educational and research purposes. The museums visited included the Insect Museum, Museum of Zoology and Workshop of Advanced Academy of Agronomy and Forestry(Iso House). The first museum visited was the Insect Museum. Everyone learned about insects in culture and edible insects, and had better understanding of insect characteristics and habits, and the cultural connection between insects and human beings' everyday living. The next museum visited was the Museum of Zoology. A film based on the theme "animal sounds" was screened to demonstrate diversity and animal instinct, and then the tour guide explained about the animals in the film, and interacted with the interns through Q&A.

  離開動物博物館後,來到磯永吉小屋,屋內保存早年磯永吉先生於台北高等農林學校做稻米研究時,留下的器具如:種子篩、Ernst Leitz Wetzlar顯微鏡與書籍文件,為在來稻改良育種成蓬萊米做了歷史見證。
  The next museum visited was Iso House. The house preserved equipment used by Iso Eikichi when he was researching rice at the Workshop of Advanced Academy of Agronomy and Forestry, including seed sieve, Ernst Leitz Wetzlar microscope and books/documents. It bears witness to the historical improvements and modifications made to create the Japonica rice.

  After lunch, everyone took the bus to Siaoyoukeng Recreation Area at Yangmingshan National Park. The tour guide led everyone along the trail to the viewing deck. On the way the tour guide explained the ecological environment around Siaoyoukeng, its geographical location and why there is steam rising from it all year round. When everyone got to the viewing deck at the landslide terrain, the tour guide used a thermometer to measure the temperature of rising steam. Everyone witnessed how hot the steam was when the tour guide poured cold water in and the water immediately started boiling.

  The last leg of the day's tour was the Zhuzihu Ponlai Rice Foundation Seed Field Story House. Divided into different themes, the Story House explains the reasons why Zhuzihu was the original planting field for Japonica rice, and tells the story of Iso Eikichi and Suenaga Megumu, and even has life-size figurines demonstrating manual threshing, allowing interns to understand the post-harvesting process more easily. At that point, the day's activities came to an end, everyone took a photo together before going their separate ways and looked forward to the next study tour.
