Sayonara Party Preparation, and Sayonara Party

This was our last day at the study center and we were planning to have the Sayonara Party in the evening.  We stayed at the study center all day long, spending the day finishing our memory journals for our own host families as well as spending a little time for our last minute souvenir shopping.
The party started a little after 6:00 p.m. and all the host families were invited.  We started the party by showing our presentation about "Japanese Seasonal Food You Should Try."  We each then gave the journals, the magnets and the photo frames to our host families by turns.  We finally had some cake and soft drink, and enjoyed talking with each other.  It was a very good party!
