Institute Lodging, May 2012

An institute lodging in Yamanakako Village is held every year. This year, about 80 people joined. We left the institute by bus at 5 PM and arrived at the hotel, “Resort Inn Ai“, before 7 PM. The lobby looked nice.    However, the inside was an ordinary Japanese lodge for students. The party started at 7:30 PM. In order to save money, we brought in Hors-d’œuvre and sushi. The party ended at 9:30 PM, but many students and teachers stayed, talking and drinking till the morning came. I took a bath, and went to sleep at midnight with two other professors in the same room.
