2 students went to Japan and experienced Homestay!

On 6th December 2019,
2 students of Bodhgaya Nihongo(Japanese) Class
(they are also teachers of basic class)
departed for Japan!

Vikas was so excited to get on the flight for the first time in his life!
So we gave him the window seat.

And he screamed unintentionally when the flight began to fly!

I recorded the moment in the video!(↑)

We safely arrived at Kansai International airport via Bangkok.
We went to my house in Kyoto by bus from the airport.

And, the host family came to pick them up!
(Their Japan tour was realised with co-operation of Angel Aid Association) 

And, Experiencing the real Osaka!
After visiting a company, the CEO invited us for dinner in Izakaya in Osaka,
and they ate various kinds of Japanese food.

They ate Sashimi-raw fish!
(Indians don't eat raw fish in their culture)
After this experience, they got used to eating and enjoying raw fish.
They are quite the challengers!

They got on Shinkansen-bullet train for the first time!
from Nagoya to Shinyokohama.
It was their first time buying lunchbox at the station.
(Although They selected sandwich...!)

After getting off the bullet train, they practiced the method of throwing
the box and bottles separately into different dust bins, at the station.

They ate Unagi/eel fish in Kyoto for the first time!
(My husband who is an Indian likes it very much)
The sauce was sweet but the eel fish tastes very nice, they said.
(They don't usually like sweet taste meals)

And we visited a house construction company at Ayabe in Kyoto.
They visited the construction site whose building structure was built in just a day.
And they even got to visit model rooms and
were very surprised to see the latest technique of
Japanese wooden construction.

After that, we had a party with the carpenters
who built the library hall in India,
which is in Surya bharti school both these students were from.
They were also there to help the carpenters together at that time.
They learned how to do Dekopin game from the carpenters, and
ate various Japanese foods and cake!
It was so fun!

Construction of the library hall in India

They stayed about 2 weeks with the host family who took care of them very much.
The host family taught them how to cook, how to fold Futon, how to clean,
how to throw garbage etc..
They learned about the Japanese life style.

They visited companies, factory, city hall, and high school.
They also had meeting and party with the supporters
of Angel Aid Association in many places.

They learned how to buy train ticket.

At the end of the tour,
we went to Nara.

Since they are very familiar with cows and goats,
they got used to deers really quickly which was nice to see.  

When we visited the great Buddha statue in Todai-ji temple,
it reminded them of Bodhgaya.

On 24th December, with the completion of Japan tour, they flied back to Gaya airport via Bangkok.
(They had a one day trip in Bangkok which we will give you the report about later!)

They are studying Japanese language with more efforts
after coming back from Japan,
with lots of good memories.

We give thanks to all the people we met and those who
helped take care of them in Japan!
I hope you will support them in the future as well!
