Ambassador Kennedy visits Kurashiki before G7 education ministerial meeting

unnamed (3)The Okayama editions of Yomiuri, Asahi, Mainichi, and regional Sanyo Shimbun reported on Saturday on Ambassador Kennedy’s tour of Kurashiki on the eve of the opening of the G7 education ministerial meeting. The Ambassador reportedly had lunch with the students of a local primary school and observed kendo and calligraphy classes at a junior high school. Noting that Kurashiki Mayor Ito, who studied at Harvard, had requested an ambassadorial visit on the margins of the G7 session, Sanyo Shimbun quoted the municipal chief as saying: “I am pleased that the Ambassador came here to observe local education. The visit was a valuable opportunity to foster interest in foreign countries among our children.”
