Happy Valentines Day! Vday in Japan is a concept I covered pretty well last year as well as in my second book which is coming this Fall. If you’d like to learn more about this holiday in Japan, please check these posts!
My 2012 Valentine‘s Day
Valentine’s in Japan
Hi. My name is Poo
This year will be my first away from school. I’m traveling with some elementary students to Niigata prefecture as part of a yearly exchange with a small town there. Our 14 students will get to see snow for the first time and see what life is like on the mainland of Japan. In return, their students visit during the summer and get to see great places throughout Kumejima including Hateno Beach. We leave early this morning and I’ll be live tweeting parts of the trip, which you can follow here or on twitter with #2013NakasatoTrip
Monday is a day off in Japan in celebration of Coming-of-Age-Day which we just celebrated on our island yesterday. I’ll be posting about that soon, but this week I have the opportunity to travel from Okinawa to Kyushu for the Junior High School Trip. School trips are a huge part of school life and are memories that will stay with students forever. This year I’ll be live tweeting throughout the four-day trip. Check back here for new tweets or follow on twitter where I’ll be using the hashtag #JapaneseSchoolTrip. Join the conversation below or just follow along!
This is actually my third time traveling with my junior high students. I’ve done a couple posts on past trips, you can find them all in my Kyushu Category.
