Sendai Train Station: Here we are boarding on a bullet train bound to our most awaited sightseeing activity in Hakodate.
Upon arrival we drop to an Old Warehouse to see around and head on filling in our hungry tummies with the healthiest buffet the Japanese way!
Oh by the way, see up for our best group pics while spending some chill time visiting the “Noboribetsu Hokkaido”, “The Former Government Building in Sapporo”, “The Beautiful Otaru Canal” and the artistic “Otaru Music Box Museum”. It was all lots of learning and fun!
And of course, we have to end the story of our wonderful Japan adventure with best solo pose ever! See you next time Japan!
What can we say! British Hills is like home. Now, our NMK- Japan Travel Group is back again for another memories to gain and more friends to keep. What’s more learning together with Japanese high schoolers set an international learning vibe for all!
For this year, our group is taking Japanese cookie baking which is definitely yummy and crunchy!
And before of course, the classes are awesome and definitely interactive!
Hello Ten-ei Village! The home of very welcoming people and the place with fun treasure. What did we do here? Oh! Too many to mention, but let’s try to sum it up by starting from the snow mountains of Ten-ei Ski Resort.
We started by taking on the open cable ride to go uphill of the starting line for the snowboarding trail. Upon reaching our superb snowboard instructor gave us a short instruction on what to do with the activity. As starters, we line up in group and five snowboarders at a time to go snowboard down the track.
Well, we noticed that while snowboarding, your leg and body angle is very important. Your body should be 90 degrees from the snowboard so the control of your speed will be easier. However, if you want to speed up you can lie down making your body at 180 degrees angle. Doing this, you must beware not to hit the snowboarders ahead of you, worst of all hit the tree. The snowboarding part is super awesome and cool.
After the cool snowboarding experience, everybody was hungry so we gathered altogether inside the resort and sat near the fireplace to warm ourselves and warm our stomachs with the most delicious noodles.
When our meals are all done and stomachs are all full, the ski resort staff prepared a snow game for us. The objective of the game is to estimate and put in a plastic bag at least 1 kilogram of snow, whoever will be successful will of course bring home a wonderful prize courtesy of Ten-ei Ski Resort.
Everyone was happy, and this memory of hospitality from Ten-ei people, the warm welcome and the exchange of culture will always be in our hearts. Thank you and until we meet again!
On the last day of our stay in British Hills, administrators and staff prepared a ceremony for all of us in order to recognize our students’ active participation as well as the support of the accompanying teachers and parent. Not only that, during this ceremony students who made an excellent performance in the speech skills were also recognized like as follows;
Tam “The Steve Jobs” who talked about “Cancer’.
Pond “The Elon Musk” who made the comparison between “Human & Robots”.
Jinny “The Newscaster” who explained the causes of ‘Obesity”.
Poosila “The Cool Protege” who boasted on “The Making of his Science Project”.
In addition, certificates were also awarded to the rest of the group followed by the exchange of “Gratitude” from both parties the “NMK & British Hills”. The warm welcome they have shown was remarkable and flawless and they did perform a great job in every aspect of the program.
Thank you so much British Hills and hope to see you again in the upcoming NMK International Journey.
