Planning a Japan trip for summer 2017

It’s still February, but I started planning my trip to Japan for summer 2017. As a fact, sometimes, hotel rooms are already full depending on the days. I figure taking a trip to Japan has been gaining popularity.

My trip is for sure for my business, and I am planning to organize several au pair seminars in several cities such as Tokyo and Osaka every year. But this trip also serves an important role for my daughter’s education. My daughter, who is bilingual in Japanese and English, enrolls Japanese elementary school in my hometown of Japan every summer for four weeks or so. This short four-week schooling in Japan plays such an important role to keep up her Japanese speaking ability, and also for her to understand and experience the Japanese culture.

At many of Japanese elementary schools, students clean up their classrooms by themselves. They also serve the lunch food that was prepared at their school kitchen. These are all considered as part of education.

Now living in the US as a Japanese national, I am proud of the Japanese school’s cleaning and serving food education. Even my daughter who was born in the US likes the cleaning time. Of course, she loves Japanese lunch time, called KYUSHOKU, hot and balanced food.
