Fascinating, even though it was all in Japanese. But Boy! That tour leader can continually talk, for about 3 hours non stop, even when, on the last leg of the journey half the passengers have nodded off, and she didn't stop smiling at any point!
Back in Aomori. Stunning views from the top of a tall building!
Our final day in Japan was spent at the Osaka International School where we conducted a series of life drawing classes with Tasha in costumes. First Victorian governess, then wearing a psychedelic 60's catsuit.
Osaka International School
Had great fun, so we did. Lots of classes, lots of Japanese students aged anywhere between 6 and 18. I took a high energy approach and really pushed them to work fast and look hard.
(Strangely enough I think I was at the same school in Norwich at the same time, pretty much, as the headmaster of the school!)
