Who would you send a kanji to?

For the last day of the Kanji Terakoya elective course, students were asked to ‘send’ a kanji to someone. Both Annie Canning and Hazel Simpson (Bates) sent a kanji to themselves!

Even when you return the the US, remember to believe in yourself and keep practicing Japanese!

Class at the Imperial Palace

Students in Oyama-sensei’s class are learning about the history of Kyoto. What better a place to hold class than the Imperial Palace, just steps from Doshisha campus?

Students walked through the gardens and visited Shishinden (Hall for State Ceremonies). The cherry blossoms were still blooming!

Last Language Table of the Semester

Today we had the last Language Table for Spring semester. As usual, the event took place at Amherst House — a prime spot for cherry blossom viewing!

Doughnuts are another big tradition for the end-of-semester Language Table. Big thanks to Indrani and Hazel for helping out with the preparations!

Many Doshisha students stopped by, and everyone had a great time. Some students exchanged contact information, so hopefully everyone will keep in touch even after the AKPers return home!
