  Pre-Departure Orientation in Washington, DC  

(posted by NAJAS staff on June 30, 2004)

The Fellows arrived in Washington DC in the afternoon and participated in an orientation at the Capital Children's Museum from 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. During the orientation, the Fellows received lectures on the KKC Fellowship program and Japanese cultural considerations and etiquette by Japan specialists. The Fellows also took a guided tour of the "Japan: Throught the Eyes of a Child" exhibit at the museum where they could get hands-on experience with the Japanese-style rooms, a school classroom, and the bullet train sheets.
After the orientation at the museum, the Fellows went to a Japanese restaurant where they tasted some Japanese food (for the first time for some Fellows) and discussed about the food culture and table manners.
Despite the hot, humid weather in Washington, the Fellows seemed to enjoy walking and taking subways to the museum and the restaurant.
