High School Graduation Trip

Japan is heading into the graduation season. My daughter has her big graduation ceremony next week (yes - she is just graduating from kindergarten.....) and most of the schools have had their graduation ceremonies already. After graduating from senior high school it is then traditional to go on a trip somewhere. This weekend we had the honor of being the destination for a local student's graduation trip. She was a student that I had done a couple of outdoor education programs with and she saw the cottage in the newspaper and was determined to come and visit. She came with her sister and my children had a great time playing with them. It was nice to see some Japanese students who could think for themselves and take the initiative to do things that they want to do (something sadly lacking in a lot of students here...).
A nice way to finish off a busy week!
