Fun from School

We can only begin to share in words and images all of our favorite moments from our days at Kichijo.

Calligraphy class was one of many highlights at school as we learned how to write the kanji for beauty, flower, heart, and friend.

Everyone took such good care of us – from helping us choose our entrees and desserts in the cafeteria to lending us extra shorts when we forgot our Porter’s gym uniforms. We spent time in English Conversation, Math, Biology, Ethics, and other regularly scheduled courses with our host sisters and students from our homeroom classes.

Fukuwarai comes in many different faces, but this old grandmother helped us have fun while learning the words for directions in Japanese class.

We also had classes built into the schedule just for us, like calligraphy and Japanese lessons. A lot of laughter, love, and lessons followed us through the halls and courtyards of Kichijo and many of the things we learned will stay with us for a long time.
