Before we left Tokyo for Kyoto, we had a banquet at a restaurant with the orientation faculty, plus Abe-sensei from Kyoritsu Women’s University and a few of her students. When we return to Tokyo in May, we will meet Abe-sensei’s students and they will accompany us (in small groups of Carleton and Kyoritsu students) to the famous Yasukuni Shrine and the adjacent war museum.
Pictured here are Aly Wisekal, Lisa Taxier, Charlie Bentley, Jojo Schmidt in back. In front we have Kyung Soo Liu, Kelsey Klug, two Kyoritsu students, and Bill Vang.
Anna Callahan. Matt Rathkey, Will Johnston and Lauren Chow were also at the banquet but I didn’t get a picture of them.
