2014 ASAHI BLADES DAY6

Our two groups met this morning at the Bushukan High School. We donned our green slippers and proceeded to the English classroom for our welcome greeting and daily schedule from two students practicing their English.

Today, we had a 10:00am engagement with the Mayor. The Blades arrived looking innocent dressed in their beige and whites. Introductions to the Vice Mayor and other dignitaries of Kushiro as well as several speeches were heard.

A weather reprieve today – 27C but feels like 38C. Phew! We are headed to Kushiro where it is more like home at 17C and cloudy with sprinkles.

Today’s weather report: sunny with light clouds; 32C that feels like 41C and boy, did everyone of us feel like we were melting!

2014 ASAHI BLADES DAY1 & 2

We made it!

After a long but uneventful flight, we arrived in Tokyo – every stick too. Upon clearing immigration with only a few unticked boxes, we were greeted by Karl’s parents and a bright pink sign reading “Welcome Nikkei Boys” being held by Nono’s parents.
