Apr. 6th, at Jean Grou at Commission Scolaire Marguerite-Bourageoys 6th grade

April 6th, 12:45 p.m. I preformed bilingual tanka reading in order to introduce the Japanese oldest literature at the 6th grade class in Jean Grou at Commission Scolaire Marguerite-Bourageoys, Montreal.

I was very much impressed with their sincere attitude to absorb unknown culture. I feel deep gratitude toward them.

In addition to the introduction of the Japanese oldest literature, we had a time to enjoy Origami. We had a friendly mutual communication, and it was a great experience for me.

I was able to recognize again that the cultural exchange is not something stiff and formal. It is an attempt to shorten the distance of our mind and soul.
