Summary of the FMF Memorial Fund Program

In June of 2001, I was one of two hundred educators selected from across the United States to participate in a three-week study visit to Japan. Funded by the Japanese government, the aim of the program was to provide the educators with first-hand opportunities to experience Japanese culture and education through school visits, seminars, and home stays. I visited museums and historic landmarks in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Kamakura, and even had the opportunity to stay in a Japanese inn (ryokan).

After a one-week program in Tokyo, we were divided into groups of twenty and sent to specific cities in Japan. I was sent to Noshiro where I visited local schools and spent a few days with a host family.

I truly enjoyed my stay in Japan. Through these slides, I wish to share some of the highlights of my trip with my students.
