Professor Shigematsu brought 21 students from UCR to the Togane campus on Thursday for a day of Japanese experiences. We started the day making Chiba-style makizushi--and had them for lunch. After that they visited our tea ceremony room and enjoyed some tea. Before joining the kendo practice hour, they also took part in a short "furoshiki" workshop. It was a very brief visit but I think everyone tried to get the most out of it.
