Continued from the last issue about going Kumamoto.
Here are the comments from our students;
“Although Kumamoto Castle is still in a damaged state, it looks grand.
Hoping that Kumamoto Prefecture and Kumamoto Castle are rebuilding in a smooth process after the earthquake.
“We had a traditional lunch at a washoku restaurant with spectacular views of Kumamoto Castle. Then a visit to the castle itself , but only from the outside as it has been damaged in the recent earthquake. Another unexpected delight was a visit to an edo style shopping area where we saw a samurai show and spoke with the young performers afterwards. This activity was also a great opportunity to get to know my fellow students ーit felt like travelling with a group of friends!”
