Your students had a great time at the ryokan and their first sleep on futons was an adventure! We
had a dinner of interesting and delectable choices from 7-Eleven (sometimes called 7 and iHoldings...why? We don't know!).
In the morning we sat down to a banquet breakfast with traditional
Japanese dishes such as a variety of pickled vegetables and seaweed, miso soup with tiny clams, rice, silken tofu in a broth
with greens and enoki mushrooms and more. Some brave students even tried the natto-a Japanese health food that is very unusual
Our tour of Kyoto was a whirlwind
of sensations and sights. Check back soon for some more impressions and photos.
