Youth Group Visiting Japan
I'm looking forward to go back there.
(Participant in the Philippines university student group visiting Japan May 2009)
My experience during the exchange programme was great.
I have enjoyed meeting new people from different walks of life, exchanging ideas, cultural exchange, and socializing different attitudes, sharing toughts and experiences in life/
We have visited some of the beautiful sceneries in Japan like, the Imperial Palace, Edo-tokyo museum, Asakusa Temple, and Ariake Water Reclamation Center.
And we have visited one of the prefectures in Japan, it is in HYOGO-Kobe City.
We have attended orientation were the students from Women's University taught us some of the cultures when staying at a Japanese Family, and start building friendship with them, I have met Fumi from the Women's University who taught me how to use the chopsticks properly.
And we were given a Host-Family, my Host-Family welcomed me warmly and they have treated me as their own son, I have my Host brother,who was named Shinpei.
I really had a wonderful experience with them, I have attached a photo with my host brother.
As of now we don't have communication but previously we have, but not stay in touch.
All I can say is I had really wonderful experience in staying Japan.
And I'm looking forward to go back there. (I have attached photos)
Thank you. More powers.
Very Truly yours,
