The exercise was preparation for an "English Adventure" class for 5th and 6th-graders at an elementary school in the town of Kumiyama, who will spend a day visiting famous Kyoto tourist spots such as Kinkakuji and Arashiyama and interact with foreign tourists.

They practised questions like "Where are you from?" and "When did you come to Japan?"
