Japan

From June 1972 until May 1973, I attended Cornell University for a total immersion course in Japanese under the guidance of Dr. Eleanor Harz Jorden, a pioneer in total immersion language training. At the end of the course in June and July 1973, Dr. Jorden arranged with the Japanese Ministry of Education for us to go to Japan and live with a Japanese family for five weeks. We spent a four weeks with our foster families and commuted in to Tokyo to continue our studies at the Iidabashii Foreign Language School in the morning and sightsee in the afternoons. We also had day trips to Kamakura and Nikko which are quite convenient to Tokyo.

For the next three weeks, we toured southern Japan -Ise, Nara, Koyasan, Kyoto, Himeji, Kumamoto and Nagasaki. We stayed in hotels, Japanese inns, temples, and hostels. We had a wonderful time and saw parts of Japan that most foreigners do not. The pictures linked below will take you to pages with more of my pictures from this trip. At the end of the trip, we returned to our foster homes for our final week in Tokyo before returning home to the United States.
