Day 2 – To Kyoto we go…

Everyone was up and ready for the challenge of moving to Kyoto where we will be based for the next 4 days. Our ground agent Mr Watanabe from Tobu Top Tours made sure things went smoothly. Students were ever so patient and waiting quietly playing an interactive role play card game….(something new to Mrs S) organized by Issac C…..called Marfia 

JR Rail pass exchange office, Express trains then Shinkansen. Lunch was on the go; mixed sandwiches, crumb pork, and some very traditional bentos. Daniel B and Tailha  C driving right in and eating some interesting foods; stewed tofu and mountain yams…..and as Taliha discribed “it was a shiny, jelly thingy…” How was it? “…yeh….I ate it but..hmm…what was it?…” Yet another mystery….

Checking into New Miyako Hotel. An afternoon of exploring Kyoto Central District and then dinner at a buffet resturant…with a chocolate fountain; milk chocolate and matcha (green tea) chocolate.

Learning to shop in another language is always a life skill, they have made some interesting purchases…. Spending some time together at the Aoen mall allowed the team to get out and about in air conditioned comfort while making friendship groups. Well done students for the care and kindness shown to all!

These students are such a delight, just positive and doing what’s needed! Thank you parents , your children are amazing!
