A Japanophile is Born

A regional news web site in Missouri, U.S.A. reported on a local high school teacher who spent two weeks on a study tour in Japan recently as part of a Toyota International Teachers Scholarship. The four themes of the program are: education, culture and history, the environment, and industry and technology. Sandra Bullington spent time at a high school in Kyoto and a Toyota Skills Academy (senmon gakko). She writes about her encounters with both the people and the culture.
Trip to Japan was life-changing experience
