The tour was organized by the Association of TokyoTech Alumni Researchers and Scholars (ATTARS); after their recent Seminar-Workshop on the Utilization of Waste Materials 2013 held in De La Salle Univeristy - Manila. The following show the places and events on that fun-filled day of September 7, 2013.

History was about guns, heroes, and the people - local and international.

The city-view and cuisine at The Bay leaf provided a relaxing lunch session.

Aster visiting historical places in Manila, the day finished with a modern twist through a first-class tour of resorts world hotels and casino. The TokyoTech guests and the ATTARS hosts truly bonded and renewed their decade-long partnership.
