Technos Trip

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to spend two weeks in Japan (June 4-18) this past summer. The trip was sponsored by Tanaka Ikueikai Educational Trust. Four students and one advisor from each of several liberal arts colleges were invited to spend two weeks enjoying a unparalleled introduction to Japan and the Japanese people. The trip was wonderful and I look forward to returning to Japan to see all the things I could not see during this trip and meet even more people.

We visited Technos Institute in the outskirts of Tokyo during International Week. There we had a chance to exchange ideas with our hosts and experience different educational environments. All too soon it was time to return home but the memories will always remain.
