Ohayoo! It was another long day for us again. We started off making ramen which was perfect for a rainy day. The students had fun with this hands on experience. I don' t think they realize how hard it was to make the noodles by hand. Thank goodness for technology! Our next stop was lunch in Kobe's Chinatown and then on to the Disaster Reduction Museum. At the museum, the students learned how the people of Kobe persevered through this natural disaster. They also found out that the rest of the country learned a lot from this unfortunate event. Next, dinner. Authentic Osaka cuisine....okonomiyaki. After dinner the students had a couple hours to shop (and boy did they).
Finally, back at the hotel for bed. Oyasuminasai.
