Osaka, Japan to Elk Grove, California
The 2015 CJSP inbound exchange welcomed twenty-two students and two chaperones from Osaka, Japan to Elk Grove, California for a ten-day visit. While here, they were fully immersed in American culture, staying with host families in the Elk Grove area and attending local high schools along with their host siblings, many of whom visited Japan during last year’s outbound program. They also had opportunities to participate in many cultural and recreational activities, exploring regions around the state such as San Francisco and Los Angeles and visiting State landmarks. At the end of the program, students came away with a deeper understanding of American culture, and made many lifelong friendships.
