This was a short day trip for us as we traveled back home from Singapore. We learned about and drew their flag in our travel journals, studied the location on the map, listened to people around us speak in the native tongue, and had amazing Japanese Curry Stew and Udon Noodles with soup. We learned that the currency of Japan is the Japanese Yen. We also took a short class on Japanese block printing, which was a lot of fun!
Enjoying the finer things…and scooter luggage!
Menu option on display…yum! So much better than photos in a menu, right?!
This sign was perfect for explaining the meaning of currency conversions.
I love things that provide cultural context. And the fact that it was FREE was just a bonus! We learned about this old art form of Japanese printing and had so much fun making our own replicas!
