Phoenix conforted students after the final exam
Final examination was given to students today. After lunch, students visited the Phoenix Pavilion in Uji-city which has been famous for its Green Tea. 30-min train ride brought them to the Pavilion on which the Phoenix could energize students. The Pavilion is somewhat familiar to everyone here because it has been curved on a 19-yen coin. It was over 95F yesterday and it was a bit cooler today yet more humid. The swift current on the Uji-river seemed to attract students to jump into the water. Next three days are long weekend here in Japan, so some will go to Tokyo, some will enjoy traditional Puppet theater, and some will enjoy themselves in Kyoto this final weekend of the Study Abroad Program.
