Farewell Weekend

On July 9th, I was packed into Jake's car with Adam, James, and Michael, and we headed to Toga. It was quite a precarious ride up the mountains of Toyama, twisting and turning through endless small towns and greenery. At times, we defied death by passing large coaches within several centimetres of being thrown over the cliff.

After several hours, our surprisingly correct navigation brought us to Toga. Toga is a mountain village known for its camping facilities. It is here that we would party to dawn during the AJET Farewell Weekend.

About half the people on JET here in Japan leave every year in August. The Farewell Weekend is a way to say goodbye to those leaving. It's a sad time, but a good time.

The Sparklers and IPeeps

Goodbye to all of you leaving, and please keep in touch!!
