People were so excited to explore Tokyo! Emily, Julie, and Amanda were discussing which activity they should attend.

Now I have to take this crowded train every morning as what salarymen do. Like now, I used to take early morning trains(subway) to school when I was in middle school in China. But we did not have a woman-only train at that time as Japan does.

Students took a tour on campus, and here is the study room.

My host mother took me to a sushi restaurant. And this is when I noticed that matcha is commonly served in Japan. Thanks Amanda for taking this picture for me.

My host mother made mochi (rice cake) for me this morning. She said this is what they eat during New Year.
