Beach barbecue

Local study abroad organization IAC was kind enough to arrange a beach barbecue for GenkiJACS students last weekend, and the photos are up on their blog here. Students had a great time, and the weather held up a lot better than our last beach barbecue. Here's hoping summer never ends!

Former student cycling the length of Japan!

Former Genki Japanese school student Dylan Jacoby is currently cycling the length of Japan, from Kagoshima all the way to the north of Japan! He's doing it to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross, and expects to finish around the 20th of September.
His blog is here, and a short write-up from the Yomiuri Shinbun is available here. Please support him in this wonderful work if you can!
