Sapporo Send Off

We leave this special place so filled with gratitude for our  many welcoming, new friends at SIT. What a lovely send off; first a performance of Stevie Wonder songs by the brass band, ending with a moving song that is a tribute to the victims of the 2011 earthquake by the band and the chorus:

   
   

Then a Tea Cermony performed by these lovely young ladies:

  

And a quick trip to the top of the impressive ski jump of the 1972 Sapporo Olympics:

  
And on the train to the airport hotel, all of this and more thanks to the diligence and kindness of Mr. Nakamaru:

  
On the plane in an hour!

  1. It was such a short visit that you could not see all of things in Sapporo and
    SIT. But it had been a great honor to have you here! Many thanks for your compliments and have a safe trip to your home country.
