went to Kamikawa and Nagatoro (Saitama Prefecture) at a seminar camp

Our group went to Kamikawa and Nagatoro (Saitama Prefecture) in a seminar camp from August 7th to 9th (2 nights).
The theme of this year's seminar was "Approach to Many-body Problem by Neural Network", and it was a full presentation by all M1 and B4 member.
As a recreation, we had a trail hike to Mt. Takarayama (Nagato, altitude ~ 500m), where everyone sweated.
We also enjoyed going downstream in Arawkawa Rive at Nagatoro.
