Questions, Part 2 of 3

For one of our last reflections, we composed a list of questions we are still thinking about for our experience. The focus of our course on women in modern Japan combined with our experiences with other young women at three different schools in Japan has left us with more questions than answers.

Here’s Georgie Harrison on the experience…

“For our meeting with the 11th grade English class, we had to come to class prepared with questions on the theme of Japanese women. I found the question ‘What were your expectations of American teenagers?’ most interesting because everyone has stereotypes and I was wondering what they thought. Their responses were surprising, but the┬ádiscussion illustrated a common theme I have found throughout my trip in Tokyo – to not have any expectations.”

The juxtaposition of old and new, traditional and modern in Tokyo is everywhere you look. Sometimes, it even comes out in our conversations with students at Kichijo.
