A GROUP of both junior and senior Wont-
haggi Secondary College students were part of
a study tour of Japan last month to experience
its’ culture, both modern and traditional.
After the first night in Osaka, we met our host
families in Hakui, a town in Ishikawa Prefec-
Time was spent exploring the local area and
growing close to our host families, many trying
on a yukata (traditional dress) and taking a trip
to the nearby city of Kanazawa.
From Monday to Thursday, we went to Hakui
High School and experienced after-school
clubs, playing the koto (musical instrument),
learning how to make soba noodles, English
classes, a tea ceremony, and lots of excursions
with our host siblings to places such as temples
and a theatre in the area.
We experienced some travel setbacks as our
train wasn’t running and our replacement bus
broke down, but the rest of the week made up
for our misfortunes, staying for a time at an is-
land called Miyajima, where deer roamed, and
enjoying accommodation in a traditional hotel
room with tatami mats and shoji screen doors.
We visited Hiroshima and Peace Memorial
Park where we met Mito Kosei, who is an in-
utero survivor of the nuclear bomb.
We stayed in Kyoto for the next few days, visit-
ing Himeji Castle, travelling to Nara Park to see
Todaiji Temple, where more deer roam around
and a 15 metre tall Buddha statue sits in the
largest wooden building in the world.
In addition to the more traditional sightsee-
ing we also enjoyed Universal Studios Japan.
Many lasting friendships and memories were
made. The students were grateful to teachers
Kenji Misawa and Louisa Leong, who organised
and supervised this trip and made it possible,
as well as Hakui High School for making us all
STUDENTS from the Wonthaggi Secondary
College didn’t have to go far last Friday to fur-
ther their heritage building studies.
They picked out the old Wonthaggi Post Of-
fice for investigation and that partly involved
doing a sketch of the architecture.
And Year 11 students Blake Richards, Ri-
ley McKie and Brandon Humphrey produced
some good likenesses. On a fine, sunny win-
ter’s day, what better place to be?
