On the first day of classes, the students began with a lesson on the Japanese Tea Ceremony, led in part by CIE’s own Ashley Warren. The students listened to a lecture on the purpose and place of the Tea Ceremony in Japanese culture, before sampling traditional sweets and trying their hand at making tea.

Thursday began with a practical lesson in Japanese calligraphy, giving students the chance to practice writing their names and favorite kanji. Aided by Showa students studying calligraphy, everyone was able to create a beautiful piece to take home.
