Graduation and Final Farewell Party, 2012

It was a graduation day today. From 10 Am to 4:30 PM, people were giving speeches and diplomas, celebrating students with good grades, taking group pictures, etc.

I was involved in many ceremonies.

After all those, bachelors, masters, and Ph. D students, and professors took two buses and left at 5 PM for Isawa in Fuefuki city, a hot spring area.  It took 20 min from the institute.

We arrived at a hotel, Keizan.

It was sort of a fancy hotel. Inside the hotel, dolls for Girls’ Day were displayed.

A woman was playing the Japanese harp to welcome us.

The party room was of a Japanese style.

The foods were good.

Everybody talked and drank for two hours.

After coming back to my office, one master and the other Ph. D student under my supervision  gave us a present to thank me. I thank them and took it home. It was big and heavy.

I opened it up and showed Katya what it was.

A Nestle coffee maker “Barista” Actually, it is not a coffee maker in a general sense, but an instrument to make an instant coffee a good one.  This machine is known in Japan now.

Katya and I will try it.
