Young Toronto Fukuoka Kenjinkai member back from Japan

From July 6 to 17, Cassidy took part in the Fukuoka International Exchange Foundation’s Fukuoka Kenjinkai Young Descendants Program in Japan. There were participants from Canada, USA, Bolivia, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Paraguay and Brazil. Cassidy made lots of friends and had a wonderful time. The jam-packed schedule included meeting the Fukuoka Governor, visiting elementary schools, learning about Japanese culture hand-on, eating and making ramen and much more. You have to be 11 years old to participate in the program. If you know a Toronto Fukuoka Kenjinkai member who may want to participate in this program next year, please let us know. Only one member can go from the Kenjinkai each year.
