Every year, a group of students from across the Waikato head to Makuhari in Japan, for the last two of Term Three. This year, 4 of the 13 Berkley students are from Room 10.
Renee, Jodi, Rose and Ethyn will be leaving at 2.00am tomorrow. I know they are very excited and we look forward to hearing about their experiences over the next couple of weeks.
Have a wonderful time and ganbatte kudasai.
Makuhari is a commercial district just outside central Tokyo along the shores of Tokyo Bay in Chiba Prefecture. In the late 1980s, the district was built on reclaimed land in a modern style of architecture and with noticeably organized city planning that includes elevated promenades and walkways as well as wide, well-designed streets. The district's attractions include a convention center, baseball stadium, lots of shopping and dining and an expansive seaside park.
