On the weekend of
September 7th to 8th, we hosted this year’s
edition of ‘Wahoo! Japan’, an overnight
homestay programme that gives foreign
residents of Kagoshima prefecture the chance
to experience Japanese home life in Kanoya.
On the afternoon of Saturday the 7th, almost
30 participants hopped on board our tour bus
and visited some famous sites in
neighbouring Shibushi, such as the Wakashio
shochu factory, Cape Daguri, and Daiji
After returning to
Kanoya, all our foreign participants went
off to enjoy a one-night homestay with the
event’s Japanese participants.
This year we had
participants from the UK, Singapore, New
Zealand, China, Germany, and the USA. This
made for a very fun international atmosphere
that everyone enjoyed. Below are some scenes
from the bus tour to Shibushi.
