Academy Junior Travels to Hiroshima

Over spring break Academy junior, Jessica Wehrman, '16 traveled to Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima through an opportunity with the Pacific Asian Affairs Council (PAAC)

Jessica primarily visited cultural locations such as the Hiroshima Peace Park, and temples such as Kiyomizudera, and the Golden Pavilion, and Kinkakuji. The program also provided ample interaction with Japanese students and opportunities to learn about the local culture and history. Jessica toured two high schools, one in central and one in northern Hiroshima, participating in various activities with the students enrolled. 

Jessica particularly enjoyed the home-stay portion of her trip; during which she visited the Peace Memorial in Hiroshima. She shares, "It provided me with incredible opportunities to learn about Japanese culture and improve my language skills. Our visit to the Peace Memorial in Hiroshima was one of the most memorable. It is an important part of the history of the world, and as a Japanese descendant, I felt drawn to learn and understand the huge effects of the atomic bomb on Japan. Overall, I think the program did a wonderful job on providing me and its other participants with opportunities to learn about Japanese culture, and interact in a hands-on way with people. The trip was a blend of old and new, traditional and modern, and I loved it. I feel I have gained incredible respect for the Japanese, and I feel blessed to have been able to visit, and definitely plan to do so again. "
