    Odaiba is the best place for entertainment, to spend the day shopping or looking for something to do.
    It also attracts huge crowds and evokes images of a settlement on another planet since it consists of glass and steel buildings, geometric structures, and covered pathways.
    One of the best and iconic place of interest in Odaiba is known as The Rainbow Bridge, a stunning bridge that stretches for half a mile across the waters of Tokyo Bay connecting Tokyo with Odaiba. While the bridge’s white spans are beautiful during the day, they truly shine at night when they are bathed in a rainbow of hues. Odaiba has a lot of attractions to cover in just 1 day and you’ll probably need to extend your vacation time to fit it all in.
    Travelling in Odaiba is one of the greatest experience because of its futuristic and quirky attractions, panoramic views and entertainment outlets. You can learn new things, relax a bit and see arts and designs.
    Appreciating beautiful Odaiba, opens one’s eyes to how great the machines are made, how they are used, and how they contributed to the growth of Japanese tourism. It’s an excellent idea that we may take into account and apply for in-class practical exercises. This will also benefit my classmates, who will learn more about machines and other course-related topics.

    As a leader in the group, I will tell them that every member in the group will observe every attractions on that particular place in joypolis and to motivate them that one group ,one mission if one member didn’t do that task all of them will failed. I suggest to the teacher that every student will submit some explanation or observation about the attractions. Joypolis is one of the attraction that can attract mechanical students because of different rides.

    As a leader who possess the qualities which makes one a good leader i will show them my ability to strive for excellence. A leader who is responsible to lead a group of people towards learning and understanding I will use my power to direct them in being cautious of our surroundings at Odaiba as we interact with different people who have their own policies, norm, culture and tradition if one of them will not listen to me i will give them informal sanction. In motivating my classmates to cooperate the first thing I will do is to showcase my abilities to them on how well versed i am in every aspect, my technological know how, skills and strategies in that way they will be motivated to cooperate as they see or think that i am a capable leader that can give them the knowledge that they want and need. Next, i will ask our teacher about giving incentives like getting a plus point or souvenirs in order for them to cooperate. Giving them inspirational and motivational message about how cooperation can give opportunities for growth and development that it can make them achieve great results. Furthermore, I think one way for them to learn is to give them activities that I think of, such as, Observe- Build they will construct a technology thing and have them explain what they saw or learn at Odaiba. Next is note taking and Reporting activity where they list all the important details and information about technology at Odaiba and let them report it or share it in our class. Last, I will organize a debate activity that will let my classmates argue or discuss about what they have observed in technology at Odaiba. In this trip, one of my motive is to influence their perspective about learning. I will make sure that they will be committed in learning as it is the vital step in achieving our own goals.

  4. As a leader, I suggest an activity that everyone will enjoy while visiting Odaiba. One of the activities not to be missed is watching the amazing transformation of the iconic unicorn gundam. Through this way we will have enough attention in the activity to be done. And while touring the area, they will know how gorgeous the culture of every corner and street of the area in Odaiba and they will be filled with knowledge and experience to witness beautiful events throughout the trip.

    As the leader of the class, I will suggest to the teacher to give a group work. A task that they should choose one of the best place or attractions that attracts them the most that has a unique mechanism in Odaiba, Japan and explain it what they have learn from the trip and how it can relate to their course. I will also suggest having a tour inside the Miraikan Science Museum. It will be the best activity to do as we will learn the modern technology of Japan and also enjoy ourselves interacting with their modern robots. This activity will also make us students interested and excited because it will be a once in a lifetime experience for all of us. Having a group work needs a teamwork in order to accomplish the task that is given in a short period of time. Also, it helps student’s to cooperate in this activity especially if your groupmates is your friends, because it’s not just learnings you will get but also the best experience that you will only feel once in a lifetime together. Exploring new things with your groupmates to learn more about that place and also about machines.

    As a Mechanical technology student and as a leader of our class, I will give them different tasks that incorporate in our course.
    For example,
    – I will let them name any machine that they will see and write it out as many as they can and then, I will give a price to whoever sees the most.
    -The other one is, I will ask them how did those machines greatly help/impact for the success of the place. I will also give a price to the one with the best answer.
    – The last one is, I will let them share what machines are new to their eyes or machines that they only saw in Odaiba, Japan.

    if we go to “Aomi Minami Port Park” as a leader, I will suggest to our teacher to divide the groups into 2 and each group has a one leader who can access the members to ensure the discipline and to listen and motivate each member to feel the present of the Aomi Minami Port. I well suggest an activity to 2 groups of what they can say about the beauty of the surroundings and why We are different from the sea side in landslide and explain to our teacher what is different.

    As a leader responsible in leading my classmates towards learning and exploring I will use my authority to instruct and remind them the proper values and behavior everyone has to have in order to be safe. It is also important to remind them the purpose of the trip which is to learn first above anything else. In order for them to cooperate with the activities assigned by our teachers I will ask our teachers to give us an assessment of our learnings especially those that are related to our course at the end of the trip and acknowledge their efforts by giving them a reward in every successful activities which I will tell my classmates eventually. I will also suggest to require a sharing of learnings from each other so that everyone can learn from each of their classmates. By telling them before hand that there will be an assessment and sharing of ideas they will be motivated to pay attention, cooperate and become more open in learning and discovering new things that are essential in our field of expertise or desired profession. Lastly, I want to make my classmates understand that cooperation and unity is important in learning and achieving the goals of the class during the trip.

    If I consider myself as a group leader and the leader of the class and we have a trip so I highly recommend to visit the famous destination in Japan which is the place of Odaiba. The one that attracts me so much is the Palette Town Ferris Wheel in Odaiba, Japan. I will motivate my classmates to cooperate, encourage and show them the beauty of Palette town ferris wheel where you can see a lot of attraction in one trip by riding the Ferris wheel of Palette town. First I will explain them if here in the Philippines we only ride ordinary ferris wheels why don’t we try the Palette town ferris wheel that from the to we can see the rainbow bridge and other famous Tokyo landmarks. Like here, it’s better for us when we ride the ferris wheel at night. I will also show some pictures of Palette town ferris wheel to attract them even more. I will keep it interesting for them to entice them to visit. That they can ride not just an ordinary ferris wheel that it is better to ride when the view below is so beautiful.

    If we are in the telecom center observatory as a leader I will suggest to our teacher to devide us into 4 groups and each group had a 1 leader just to ensure that their member will listen and cooperate certain activities, I will suggest an activity that all groups should need to look the different tourist attractions and each groups will choose one tourist attractions and they will explain to their classmate what kind of tourist attractions and why they choosed that kind of tourist attractions.
