Jenesys 2.0 – Programme in Japan

Written by
Organised by the Japanese International Cooperation Centre (JICE),
Government of Japan during 26th May – 03rd June 2014

Anjali Haridas
Class IX-J, 
DPS Bangalore South
 
I was fortunate enough to be selected to be part of the Jenesys programme organised by JICE during May-June 2014. The programme involved an 8 day trip to Japan.
The batch consisted of 100 participants (96 students from all over India and 4 supervisors). The representatives from the Japanese embassy also attended the meeting to wish all the participants. We were split into 4 groups and I was attached to ‘Hokkaido D’ group. Mr. Kailash Upadhyaya teacher from DPS, Delhi was the supervisor of our group. 
We landed at the Narita International Airport the next morning, Tokyo and were greeted by the smiling JENESYS representatives Takiyashi-san and Junko-san
We were allowed to stroll around the local area every day throughout the 8-day trip after 6 pm for shopping and to gain first-hand experience of the city, its culture and people, practicing our Japanese speaking skills with local persons and shopkeepers. There is no blowing of horns or chaos on the streets. 
It was a great learning experience for all of us about the Japanese systems, discipline and hardworking nature of Japanese people.
Sight-seeing in Tokyo included the Imperial Palace (where we took souvenir photographs against the backdrop of Nijubashi bridge and the old guard tower), Asakusa, Tokyo Tower and Odaiba.

We moved to Sapporo, Hokkaido on the 4th day of our programme. Sight-seeing in Sapporo included Odori Park and JR Tower Observatory. We were fortunate enough to visit the Hokkaido Government office building. Prior to the tour of the building we were shown a presentation on the importance of Hokkaido in Japan.
The next day in Sapporo was a school exchange visit to the Sapporo Shinyo High School where we bonded with students and staff over exchanging individual cultural arts and lunch. We bid good-bye to them after making new friends and exchanging contact information.

From then on, our home-stay portion of the schedule started. We moved to the venue of the meeting place with the host family. My host family members included the main host, Sachiyo Shibuya-San, her son Futa (13) and two daughters, Honoko (20), and Hinata (16). Sachiyo Shibuya-San is working at the University and Honoko is a trainee nurse. Futa and Hinata are students. The father of the children works in a different city and hence we couldn’t meet him during the stay. The stay with them was enjoyable as we bonded with them over books, played video games with the family and watched a mutual favourite television programme Sherlock.

We visited the Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium and Museum and went for shopping with our hosts the next day. We had traditional Japanese Udon noodles and later visited the neighbourhood. We interacted with the local citizens, exchanging our information regarding the history, culture and social life of the two countries.
We visited the Sapporo Science Museum and Planetarium on the third and final day of our stay with our host family. A farewell party was arranged for all participants of our group along with all the host families. The party was enjoyable and equally emotional. The host family presented us with an album of the photographs taken during the stay. We bid goodbye to the wonderful family of Sachiyo Shibuya-San promising to keep in touch with each other. We moved back to Tokyo from Sapporo the next day.
 Each group made a presentation of what they learnt and experienced in Japan on the last day of our stay in Japan. All participants were presented with certificates from JENESYS. It was time for us to bid a long goodbye to Takiyashi-San and Junko-San and other Japanese supervisors. We moved to Odaiba, where we visited the beach and the Aqua City Mall. Shopping and dinner summed up our last day. 
After fresh memories and a wonderful and enjoyable trip, we had to return albeit reluctantly to India.
This experience has inspired me to try to follow the positive traits of the Japanese like punctuality, respect for every individual and kindness.
 
I sincerely thank Principal ma’am, Syeda Noor Asma ma’am and the rest of the school management for providing me with this opportunity and making this wonderful and unforgettable experience possible.
