Thank you!

This is my last entry.

I am very glad that the program was over without any problems.

Dear my students,
Thanks all students for your contributions.  We could not complete this type of program without your sensitive behaviour.  I am so glad and proud to see your efforts to understand Japanese culture and learn Japanese language.

I am also very impressed to see how students build up friendships with Japanese students through this program.  I really appreciate all supports from the Senshu University and friendships which our students received from people around them.

Dear all,
I am now in my hometown to spend sometime with my family.  I will head back to Calgary on Sunday, June 14.

Thanks for reading my blog!
I hope to see you again on campus or somewhere in the world!

Have a wonderful summer!!

See you again _ June 6

I was late to go downstairs, I think.  When I went there, some students have already left.  

The lounge looked empty.  I am sure that many felt the same.

Ninja Restaurant _ Wednesday, June 3

It rained in the morning but cleared in the afternoon.

We went to "Ninja Restaurant" today.  I attended one of graduate seminar classes in the morning and I used up most of my energy therefore I gave up going to Roppongi Hills.

I arrived at the restaurant about 6:40pm.  When I got there I noticed something open between buildings..  The sky.  It is almost for the first time for me to see the sky in Tokyo.  The restaurant is right next to Akasakamitsuke station, and the area, Akasaka, is next to the imperial palace, which are surrounded by the green area.

I heard that students visited Akihabara, Shibuya or Roppongi before coming to the restaurant.  - I am surprised that they still have energy to walk around Tokyo...  I think that I am a little worn out.

Our meeting time was 6:50 and we booked a room from 7:00 to 9:30pm.  Since this is a theme restaurant, we can not be late.

Students looked so serious because they were going to present their research projects in Japanese today.
