subway to the Sapporo City Hall

City hall office, people standing up to greet us. Open office space, quite similiar to Red Hat.

Then we met the city mayor, Mr. Fumio Ueda. Ueda-san greeted us and Munich. Then we visitors were introducing ourself briefly.

A letter from Christian Ude was read.

Then we did split up into 2 groups, each of the groups visiting a school. This is an Interesting vehicle spotted.

A long park is in the center of Sapporo

I like such views with skyscrapers and trees in front

There is also a Maibaum, often seen in Bavaria.

The Sapporo subway operates on tyres

Arriving at the school.

Art at the entrance. Below are shoes stored, we also have to change shoes.

We attended some lessons, this is physics.

Math lesson


Origami, we received origami for present

We had lunch together

We did listen to songs and also sing some german folk songs.

On our visit at the school homepage:

Then we learned about Japanese tea ceremony - in attending. Its hard for most of us to sit in the traditional form required for this.

The ceremony is about preparing the tea, how to serve it to consumers, how consumers have to offer it to each other and so on.
