The 2016 Saline High School Japan Study Tour returned to Michigan on Thursday, June 30 after a successful 14-day trip. This tour was conducted as part of the New Perspectives Japan Program and was led by Saline High School social studies teacher John Fox.
Their tour was composed of two key components:
An eight-day visit to Inatori, a rural community on the Izu Peninsulawhere students experienced complete immersion in Japanese culture, language, and daily living in a home stay while also attending Inatori High school as guest students.
Six carefully planned study days in the cities of Tokyo and Kyoto, visiting key historical and cultural sites.
Saline students attended classes at Inatori High School, took part in school sports and club programs, and visited a local nursery school.
The staff and administrators of Inatori High School were deeply impressed with the openness, sincere commitment, and outstanding conduct of our students. Participating students this year were Kienna Qin, Vanessa Roe, Noah Cook, Tyler Stachler, Conrad Brill, Isabel Mejia, Ashlyn Victoria, and Harrison Orwig.
