KIchijo held a farewell party this evening for the Porter’s students. It was a lovely way to end our last full day in Tokyo. There were many, many tears, much laughter, and promises to keep in touch. Our students shared a rendition of “Farmington’s Calling,” a song which is normally performed in certain circumstances, but we felt it was appropriate to share with new family. The Kichijo students in turn sang an impromptu version of their school song, which was an unexpected and wonderful gift.
Some of our students are heading out for one more night in Shibuya before packing and preparing for travel tomorrow.
