On Sunday, July 31, MHI hosted a workshop at the Kinahaiya Ikata Festival held in the town of Ikata in Ehime Prefecture, in Shikoku. The workshop consisted of a paper craft class in which the young participants were given instruction in how to make various denizens of the sea, and also a paper model of the Shinkai 6500 manned research submersible.
The MHI Group will continue, through a variety of opportunities like this, to contribute to local communities and to support the development of future generations.
The children crafted their works using printed patterns.
Help was provided by staff from MHI's Shikoku Branch.
The thickness of the paper was sometimes hard to work with.
Some children chose to make a paper model of the Shinkai 6500.
