After getting off the bullet train, they practiced the method of throwing
the box and bottles separately into different dust bins, at the station.
They ate Unagi/eel fish in Kyoto for the first time!
(My husband who is an Indian likes it very much)
The sauce was sweet but the eel fish tastes very nice, they said.
And we visited a house construction company at Ayabe in Kyoto.
They visited the construction site whose building structure was built in just a day.
And they even got to visit model rooms and
were very surprised to see the latest technique of
Japanese wooden construction.
After that, we had a party with the carpenters
who built the library hall in India,
which is in Surya bharti school both these students were from.
They were also there to help the carpenters together at that time.
They learned how to do Dekopin game from the carpenters, and
ate various Japanese foods and cake!
It was so fun!
They stayed about 2 weeks with the host family who took care of them very much.
The host family taught them how to cook, how to fold Futon, how to clean,
how to throw garbage etc..
They learned about the Japanese life style.
They visited companies, factory, city hall, and high school.
They also had meeting and party with the supporters
of Angel Aid Association in many places.
At the end of the tour,
we went to Nara.
Since they are very familiar with cows and goats,
they got used to deers really quickly which was nice to see.
When we visited the great Buddha statue in Todai-ji temple,
it reminded them of Bodhgaya.
On 24th December, with the completion of Japan tour, they flied back to Gaya airport via Bangkok.
(They had a one day trip in Bangkok which we will give you the report about later!)
They are studying Japanese language with more efforts
after coming back from Japan,
with lots of good memories.
We give thanks to all the people we met and those who
helped take care of them in Japan!
I hope you will support them in the future as well!
