We just finished an amazing experience at the Seigakuin school. The boys did kendo and were given real kendo swords with their names engraved on them! The girls were treated like Rick stars and made many instant friends. This was a day no one will forget.
We are now off to karaoke! Pictures and details from the kids will follow tomorrow as we journey to Kyoto.
The boys and girls have split and are visiting the Seigakuin school. I think everyone is finding that people are the same notated where they are from. Music, games, sports, and school are the great commonalities of adolescence. Our hosts are very gracious and very interested in us. Mark really loved his Japanese school lunch. The boys got the chance to critique se Japanese to English translations.
