On Thursday, 31st January 2013, a representative from the Japanese embassy in Athens Mr. Daisuke Yamashita visited our school and made a small but very important presentation of his country. He informed us about the population of Japan, how people cope with earthquakes, all the Japanese customs (local dishes, traditional clothes etc) and he eagerly answered our questions. Mr. Yamashita gave us a piece of paper with our names in Japanese and some useful, basic expressions, such as “konnichiwa”, which means “hello” and “arigatou” which means “thank you”. In my opinion, that was the best presentation I have ever seen. Except from being educational, it was interesting and magical. I enjoyed an imaginary journey to Japan, which is 15 hours away from Greece, in only one hour and a half. I don’t know if my interest and my love for Japan made me have this point of view. I believe that everyone loved it! If I could say something to Mr. Yamashita that would be“thank
