On September 20th, 2015, 10 students (7 Year 5s and 3 Year 6s) and teachers embarked on a 9 day Japan adventure. We needed to arrive in Osaka (Kansai International Airport) in order to travel to Hiroshima the following day, which meant our flight went via Cairns. It also meant a very early start. We had to meet at Gold Coast Airport at 4.45am! We also had a delay in Cairns so we arrived at our hotel at 11pm that night. A long day, very tired students…… but at least we were now in Japan and ready to experience all of the culture, customs and language that Japan has to offer.
