Day 7 – June 9, 2012

12 Jun

Today, marked the 50th Anniversary of the Technos College and the 20th Anniversary of the Technos International Week.  There was an anniversary ceremony where Dr. Kenji Tanaka, our host, was present.  There were many congratulatory speeches and messages.  There was also an Introduction of Technos College and history!  After, there was a luncheon reception, where there was a toast from the professor at Oxford and Pembroke College.  The best sushi in Japan was served at the luncheon, as well as prime rib, several Japanese foods, and many delicious desserts.  It was amazing!  After, we received a gift from Technos and enjoyed a popular Japanese performer.  Then, we all took a bus back to the hotel.  Later, we got on the train and headed to Shinjuku.  As we were in Shinjuku, we walked the city and saw a lot of types of Japanese fashion.  We ended up getting lost in the “Times Square” of Shinjuku about three or four times, but we managed to make it back to the train station.  When we got there, a Japanese man named Haruki helped us find which train to take, and rode the train with us until we got back to Fuchu!  People are so nice here!
