Hi everyone, this is Courtney again!

Sorry that we haven't been able to post too often! In addition to being incredibly busy, only the Executive Committee here has continuous access to internet, so this is only the second time that I have been able to use the internet so far.

As of now, all of us here at the Japan-America Student Conference are now on the bus heading for Kyoto! I have heard that we will have continuous internet access there, so I hope to update more often.

Since my last update, as a delegation we had the amazing opportunity to visit a nuclear power plant. We were able to discuss many issues such as the effects of nuclear energy, nuclear energy related to natural disasters, and the relationship between the nuclear power plant and the people. In addition to this, we broke into special topic discussions, where my group focused on looking at possible renewable energy sources and ideas related to public transportation. Visiting the power plant was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to share in a dialogue and learn from the professionals in charge of provideing energy for Japan.

New friends!

Talk to you soon!
