|After the exhibit, students write letters to poets whose tankas spoke out to them.|
Afterwards, students were able to tour ASIJ and meet current high school students.
"ASIJ is pretty much like an American school," said senior Joe Encinias. "It's way more modern than the Toyo school we visited; there's way more technology. It seemed like [students] moved classes like we do, but in Toyo students stayed in one class."
After their tour, students were taught how to make origami cranes with a twist -- students taught them while speaking Japanese. Other ASIJ students sat with LHS and translated for the team as they created their birds.
After visiting ASIJ, the team participated in sight seeing activities around Tokyo by visiting a Shinto temple and shopping in the local district.
