The Taste of Japan Reflection/Celebration Day

A small group of adult facilitators, youth helpers and performers were at Sumo Japanese Restaurant at 2:00 p.m.. After a welcome by Justin, participants viewed a reflective PowerPoint and the Origami DVD. The Taste of Japan DVD was not ready by the celebration time. It was sent to JFMF later on.

The Taste of Japan Reflection/Celebration was honored by the presence of Mr. Lloyd Hardin, Consul General of Japan in Oklahoma and his lovely wife. Hardin San closed the affair explaining the importance of interpersonal relationship and seniority in the Japanese culture. Mr. Hardin also broaden the participants' understanding of the meaning of karaoke in the Japanese culture.

Thank you to everyone who attended and provided feedback for future cultural activities at Casady School! Posted by Picasa
