Members of LUJ’s Hospitality Club were recently given the opportunity to visit the Enoshima Island Spa, a Japanese onsen resort located just above the ocean on the Shonan Coast near Kamakura. The visit began with two of the resort managers providing a guided tour of the property, showing LCJ’s club members the full operations, services and activities offered. Students were given full access to the hot spring, pool, restaurant and dining areas, as well as the various spa and treatment rooms.

Hospitality club members were then invited to a “coffee meeting” with spa management, who shared the history of the resort and discussed numerous hospitality and business-related topics, including new and innovative marketing strategies, cultural issues of foreign clientele, dealing with new operational challenges, and future planning considerations for the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Spa management also took questions and shared insight with our students regarding skills they value in new employees, and various career opportunities within the hospitality industry.

Charlie Stockman, the faculty representative of LUJ's Hospitality Club, mentioned "what a great experience it was for the students because it showed a lot of areas and services of a resort that people don't notice as guests. One of the goals of this club is to get them more exposure to the hospitality industry and the various careers and opportunities out there, and it really seemed to help students connect classroom learning to real-world scenarios".
