Today is the last day of homestay. We’ve experienced a lot about Okinawan Culture. In the morning, we made Okinawan Donut by ourselves, I love it! And then we went to the Farm and helped our host family. Later it rained heavily and we went back to home. As soon as had the rain stopped than Ochichan drove us to historical places such as Mass Suicide Site, Niiban Gajumaru and Memorial Monument. As I love history, this visit was very knowledgeable for me.
After lunch, we prepared everything for departure. I felt sad because it was getting near to say “Bye”. We went to the Port and then, Closing Ceremony in IE Island was successfully held. We took a lot of photos with Obachan.
I don’t want to say ‘Bye’ because I believe we’ll meet again one day. So we just waved our hands on Ferry and shouted to them ‘Arigato Gozaimasu”. We had a lot of memorial things on IE Island.
We stay at Shimanchu Club for the 3rd session. At night, we shared our homestay experiences and found out what we enjoyed during that time.
Hhuumm. I’ll stop now. It’s time to say ‘ Oyasuminasai’.
Sleep well, sweet dream!


Today was the last day at our home stay at Ie Island. We baked traditional Okinawan cookies and made Okinawan donuts. We also went to see the Habu Snake and some historical artifacts. The closing ceremony was amazing. Some participants performed a musical piece on the sanshin. I enjoyed this home stay a lot and will definitely miss my home stay family. We returned, by ferry, to Onna Village. We are staying at the Shimanchu Club for the third session. At night, we shared our experiences of Iejima with the other participants.
The shadow of the Final Presentation looms over us. I am also rather unhappy as we have reached the last couple of days for the programme.
