Day 8: Bullet Train to Tokyo

Our day long journey today took us from the sleepy hill town of Takayama, back to the booming city of Nagoya on the coast, and then north-east to Tokyo and Chiba where we would meet our friends in Inage.  After a warm greeting from our hosts we had a brief welcome ceremony that included speeches from students.  We took a group photo for posterity and then it was off in pairs to the homestay-families’ homes.  Tonight begins the second and most interesting leg of our journey – billeting in a Japanese home.  Tomorrow, students will no doubt have stories to tell!    …Oh, and it looks as though we may have finally found the sun!
