Shrines, sashimi, shinkansen and sticky rice. How do you make sure 19 students know how to eat with chopsticks? Take them on a whirlwind cultural tour of Japan!
Coordinated by Nicole Robins; Timothy Jiow, Cynthia Edward and Sarah Harris accompanied 19 Year 10 and 11 students on the tour, stopping in many places including Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima and Osaka (one of the food capitals of the world). We dove into understanding cultural parts of Japan visiting the Shinto shrines, temples, gardens and both Nijo and Osaka Castles; as well as experiencing more modern culture at Universal Studios and dinner with karaoke.
