Touring the Diet Building

Students visit the National Diet and meet former Prime Minister Kan

Students from the high school Japan Studies class taught by Bapi Ghosh visited the National Diet Building (Japanese Parliment) and  saw where lawmakers meet and work. They also had the honor of meeting former Prime Minister Naoto Kan.

Mr. Kan spoke about how he managed the 3/11 crisis from the underground crisis center and seemed eager to share more with our community. He also listened thoughtfully to our students speak about their school and was especially impressed with student-led green initiatives. We were grateful to have the opportunity to talk to Mr. Kan—it was a priceless experience for our students. (Bapi Ghosh, HS Social Studies)
