Japanese Culture

Part of the orientation program includes a weekend home stay. Tonight I met my host family and we participated in traditional Japanese cultural activities including origami, calligraphy, and a tea ceremony. Here are my attempts at an origami crane and the Japanese character for rain. The small characters on the left are my name.

And here is tonight's dinner. The seafood is fresh and delicious, and I really enjoy the modular food concept.

I think I'm going to like it here.
