I forgot to mention the Pottery trip that some of the parents took. Tom took some great photos and Bill wanted to share this video. I tried to post it, but wasn't able to. Everyone was amazed at this master craftsman and how he was able to create outstanding pieces so quickly. Mae was able to get a lesson in pottery and she created a traditional tea cup. The craftsman said he would fire it and give it to Hiro so that he could send it to Mae.
After the pottery experience, several of the parents went to a sushi restaurant, where there was a conveyor belt with many items. You simply picked what you wanted.
