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.
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.
