Visit To Fukushima July 26 – 29, 2019

Our first stop in Fukushima was Sakura no Seibo Junior College, under the direction of Ms. Minami Nishiuchi and owned by our sisters. A very warm welcome was extended by our sisters, the director and all the students and staff. All kinds of treats were offered to us. After a guided tour of the college, the sisters talked to us about the origins of the school. Once the visits were completed, Ms. Nishiuchi spoke to us about the school and the situation of women’s education in Japan. A game of questions and answers followed and Father Aimé and Julie served as interpreters. We all received gift bags with “Sakura no Seibo Junior College” stamped on them. We met and talked with the students of the college and participated in a game. Pictures were taken in a friendly and pleasant climate. The students put on a musical performance, which was very much appreciated. We then left the college.
