The program has officially completed today. After the only free morning time, we all changed to Japanese yukata, and attended a closing ceremony, then a wonderful party. There were so many laughs and tears, any every one made such a mazing speech! The program has now become a history, and we will never forget these wonderful time, and great learning.

It is the day to see kabuki! We had a trip to National Theatre of Japan beside the Palace Plaza and enjoyed a two-hours show. There was even a short lecture about various details of this unique tradition, and the play, although it was a very simple story, gave us a good taste of the amazing performance.

In the morning, every one took the final exam for the Japanese classes. In the evening, there was the Thank-Party – we have invited our Japanese teachers, RAs, and the program organizer. It was truly a wonderful moment. Thereafter, we even had a moment to enjoy a little firework!

It is already the day for final presentation. Every one has prepared for this one in a great deal. Many took it as a unique academic project, and collected some original data through interviews with local students. Presentations covered a wide range of topics, and many local students as well as host family members came and joined us.
Now, we have completed the requested task of creating and updating blogs and each group has uploaded its very last entry. There are such rich contents, vivid records on what we have seen and we felt in Japan. We wish you like the writing, and share the excitement with all of us.
