The morning was spent at our various schools having one more visit. Some groups had assemblies and did performances; others took classes and learned more about language and culture. Volleyball, group dances, origami, tea ceremonies and delicious school lunches.
Jon Copeland’s quote of the lunch hour:
This is way better than choice lunch!
Lunch has been a little different at each school. Today was rice with Sunn Ma, a very moist grilled fish, miso soup, pickled salad, milk and an apple jello-like dessert. These are lunches made on site by kitchen staff; each day . They are healthy and delicious!
We arrived in IWAI late afternoon. We are about 90 minutes from Tokyo by the sea. This is a traditional Japanese hotel and very beautiful. We had a delicious curry meal prepared by the students and then had the option of a traditional Japanese bath.
