Well, My uncle Phil has recently come to Japan aswell and we are both attending GenkiJACS. After doing the level check test, he was placed in the level 1 class and I was placed in the more advanced level 3. None-the-less, I hope he does his best. Yesterday as part of Phil's culture class here at the school, Phil's class visited the local Kushida shrine, and one of the teachers snapped a pretty good picture of Phil saying a prayer. This picture has now been posted on GenkiJACS official school blog website, and you can view it HERE. Check it out!
On a side note, I came accross this really cool video on 3yen that I just had to share with everyone. This is everyday Japan for sure, and does a great job of showcasing my time here (even though I have nothing to do with this video).
