Ohayoo gozaimau parents. We received your children yesterday morning and they are all safe. Only bad thing about their coming back is, they were not happy to see us and they were sad to leave their host families. What a difference a weekend makes. We then experienced our first trip on the subway on our way to Osaka Aquarium. The students enjoyed the unusual sea creature that live around the ring of fire. Next, lunch at Tempozan and more shopping. Parents, you have some shopaholic children!
Finally, Farewell dinner at Taiko-en restaurant. Many tears were shed here by both students and host family members. It was a very sad moment for everyone including the chaperones.
Next stop, Kyoto and then finally our flight home. Until then parents. Jaa mata...
