Every two years Parkway South’s Japanese program organizes summer trip to Japan. This is the third of the summer trips and my second time going on a summer school trip to Japan. Our trip consisted of a homestay in a city called Suwa in the Nagano prefecture of Japan for ten days. Then we went Kyoto and stayed for 2 nights at a traditional Japanese hotel. Then we stayed 8 days in Tokyo to finish up our 20 day trip.
Our group consisted of the Japanese teacher, another adult chaperone, and 8 students from Parkway South. Of these students 6 were seniors who graduated two weeks before the trip.
It was a fun and enjoyable experience and I hope that I can return to Japan at some point.
