She went to Tokyo, Kyoto and then the conference in Osaka ( by bullet train- Shinkansen) to talk about Teaching and Learning at Mangere Bridge Kindergarten.
She had a very lovely translator to Japanese, Mikiko ( on the right) and met up with Yukiko again - who visits us in New Zealand.
The children were entranced with stories of the bullet train and we have been watching youtube videos of the fastest train in the world since she got back.
Wow look how fast it goes between 200 and 300 kms an hour!!!!!
We all love trains and this one is very special.
