The Japan Club is looking for Kittery students in grades 6-9 who who want to participate in the town's exchange program with Rokunohe and Oirase towns in Aomori Prefecture. The trip will include:

· round-trip flight,
· hotel stays in Narita (the old town near the airport) and sightseeing
· the Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to Aomori
· overnights and activities with your host family
· participating in the famous Nebuta festival in Aomori city

This will take place the first week in August. The anticipated cost is about $2500 per student.  The Japan Club needs at least five students to make this trip worthwhile. Parents are welcome at the same price. The Japan Club will provide two adult chaperones.

If interested in exploring this opportunity, print off the attached file below and return the completed form to Shapleigh School sixth grade science teach (and Japan Club coordinator) Peter Cady. For more information, contact Mr. Cady at
