Welcome Party Fall 2018

AKPers Tresson Cook-Gallardo (Carleton College) and Shuting Xu (Scripps College) were the MCs of this semester’s Welcome Party and greeted everyone in Japanese. 

It’s the start of a new academic year at AKP, and a new experience living with a host family for our students. Everyone, take care of yourself and strive towards a productive semester!

Japanese Orientation Fall 2018

Kyoto was directly in the path of Typhoon Jebi, and students struggled with flight delays and cancellations before finally arriving. Today was Japanese Orientation. There were no late students, and everyone listened earnestly.

Here’s to a great academic year!

She became a teacher!

2016-17 AKPer Ana Lester-Owens (Smith College) stopped by the office for a visit. Starting next semester, Owens will be teaching English at Doshisha Girls Junior High and High School.

She looks very teacher-like here!
