Bridging Cultures

9月21日~10月3日

3 September 2007

To Students, Parents, Teachers and most especially our Hosts and Host Families Our College students are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to visit Japan, a unique part of the world, providing them with invaluable social experiences, as well as key cultural visits. This tour represents a wonderful opportunity for the students and staff of our College to take part in a life-changing event. The trip offers much more than just learning about the Japanese language and customs; it is about the development and growth of our College’s young people. We acknowledge the exciting opportunity the tour offers our staff and students to gain life-long friends and build international knowledge and understanding. For many of the touring party, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and as such it will be savoured. I trust you will have a truly memorable touring experience, moreover, remember that at our College we respect each other, our leaders, our guests and our hosts. On behalf of the entire school community, my thanks to all involved with the organisation of this tour; the host schools, host families and Japanese people. Yours faithfully

Mr PRINCIPAL

Information Notes
Before you go

インフォメーション・ノート

Read all you can. It is helpful to have some idea of what you are going to, the country, the culture, and the customs. There are numerous books and web sites on Japan. Will your Japanese improve? The first sentence you say will be the hardest. After that it will get easier. However conversation won‟t just come to you. You have to take the initiative and make it happen.  Before you go – read over the phrases in this booklet many times. If there are phrases you don‟t understand, ask! Imagine yourself in a situation, then practice aloud. You could also practice with a friend.   In Japan – Look and listen. Listen to the TV and radio. These will be far too fast for you but eventually you will absorb the intonation and accent. Talk Japanese at every opportunity – Use Japanese as much as possible, give it a go, take a chance!! Luggage It is essential that you take no more than 3 items of luggage and to ensure that you can carry all items of luggage by yourself! The following luggage is recommended:    One suitcase (this will be sent on to the host school when we arrive) One sports bag that can fit clothes for 3 days One backpack bag for day trips

The lighter you can travel the better. By the time you leave Japan you will no doubt be grateful for the extra space in your suitcase created by leaving things out. Check out the items you should pack on the next page. Climate It will be the end of summer. Evenings will be cooler but the days could be quite warm. Gunma in August experienced quite high temperatures (44 degrees) so it is important that you drink lots of water (not coke, this dehydrates you). At the end of September is normally starting to cool off and you can expect daytime temperatures of 22-27 degrees. Clothing Clothing is very important in Asian cultures as you are judged by your appearance. You should therefore, dress formally, smartly and tastefully – remember you are an ambassador, not a tourist!   School trip uniform is expected for students. Please refer to your booklet to tell you what colour shirt you are to be wearing on the day Casual wear for other times Take clothes that don‟t crease easily. Comfortable shoes will be essential as you will be doing a reasonable amount of walking. Be prepared to take your shoes on and off frequently. Loose leather slip-on shoes are convenient. Take plenty of cotton shoes without holes to avoid smelly feet! 6

Money Japan is a cash society. Travellers‟ cheques can not be exchanged easily! Also there are limited machines that will accept international cash flow cards in Japan so think carefully before taking one. The currency is Japanese Yen (JPY) which is approximately NZ$1 = 83 yen. You will get a better exchange rate in New Zealand so it is wise to change your money before we go. Quick Guide to Exchange Rate ¥100 = $1.20 ¥1000 = $11.98 ¥10000 = $119.90 $1.00 = ¥83 $10.00 = ¥830 $100.00 = ¥8300

A lot of the meals will be included in the travel costs paid however students will be given a meal allowance per day when the meal is not supplied. All activities and transport is included in the $3,500 paid. Any money above this is up to the students and their parents. This money is the student‟s own responsibility. Useful items  A small album of photographs and postcards – home, family, pets, your school, your town, NZ culture etc. This will give you something to talk about with people you meet on the train. Take a few extra postcards to give away as well.  A waist money belt.

Essential items * Waist-bag containing, cash, passport, other valuables * Day pack/school bag-cabin luggage, daily outings, overnight stays * Itinerary booklet/diary * Writing gear (pens, small notebook) * Photos of your life in NZ to show host family * Roll bag/medium sized back pack/suitcase * Watch, Camera, Small calculator * Toilet gear (tampoons/shampoo/toothpaste etc) * Medicine, Tissues for blowing your nose * Handkerchiefs for wiping your hands * 1 small towel or flannel * Plastic bags for dirty/wet clothes/shoes * Water bottle * School trip uniform and sneakers * Other appropriate casual clothing Underwear and socks Jeans/long trousers Sleep wear 1~2 T shirts 1 sweater or light jacket for cool nights Walking shoes

Lightweight rain jacket or parker or foldaway umbrella

Gifts Gift giving is an important part of life in Japan. It is recommended that you take some small gifts to show your gratitude to the many helpful Japanese people you will meet on your travels. Gift ideas may include:        NZ craft items/ picture book/ calendar/ chocolates / stickers/ pins / postcards, Food such as jam, honeys, kiwifruit slices, biscuits to share on the train NZ tea towels Small souvenir kiwis Picture book on NZ Pens, pencils, erasers, key rings, stamps, coins, plastic tiki NZ chocolate, biscuits, canned butter, honey

It is better to have too many gifts than to be embarrassed by being caught short. Gift-wrapping is also very important so take some paper, cello tape and scissors and wrap your gifts there to avoid “suitcase scrunch syndrome.” General    It is suggested that you take a clear file to file away the huge array of brochures/ souvenirs you will accumulate over the trip. Before you leave get used to eating rice and noodles with chopsticks. If you like your own special tea or coffee (with sugar), take it with you as there will be flasks of water in your hotel room and on the train. Japanese teabags and cups will be provided in the hotel but not on the train.     Check your general knowledge of NZ, especially in comparison to Japan, as you will no doubt be asked lots of questions. Phrase questions tactfully e.g. In NZ we.., how does this compare with Japan, rather than “why do you….?” Avoid being judgemental. Remember you are a guest in Japan, and as one you should be gracious and diplomatic. When speaking English, try to speak slowly and clearly in short sentences. If you cannot make yourself understood try writing down what you want to say. Avoid kiwi slang words, idioms or phrases.   If you are unsure as to what to do in a particular situation, watch what the Japanese people do around you and follow their cues. Try to be observant. If you have a concern or problem, let your teacher know sooner rather than later! It is better for us to be made aware of a situation than be surprised when it has reached crisis level. In most cases, the earlier we know, the greater chance we have of successfully sorting it out.

Safety 8

               

Always look both ways when crossing the road. Never assume people will stop a pedestrian! Always keep you luggage in sight and preferably be in contact with it at all times e.g. stand with it between your feet rather than to the side of you. Stay with the group Never accept things from strangers (A common ploy if for shopkeepers to hand you something and then refuse to accept it back). Japanese tap water is safe to drink but take a drink bottle with you when you go out for the day in case you get thirsty. Be aware of pickpockets and people who may slash your backpack when it is worn on your back. Ensure none of your valuables are in the outside or side pockets. Always keep your money and passport in a safe place. Discretely check often. Lock your suitcase in your hotel room when you go out and ensure nothing valuable is left lying out. Ensure your passport is in good condition. If tatty it may cause logistical problems. Stuff socks and small items into your shoes. Put leakable items inside two sealed plastic bags e.g. Glad zip-top bags. Nothing is more annoying than opening your suitcase and finding every smells like shampoo. Pack a change of clothes, underwear and your toilet bag (minus razors, pocket-knives, and scissors etc) into your carry on luggage. Tag your luggage with a bright coloured ribbon so it is easily identifiable on the baggage carousel. Your skin will dry out inside the cabin. Drink plenty of water and use moisturizer as necessary. Walk around the cabin and do stretches in your seat. Take some snacks on the plane to eat in between mealtimes. Take an unopened drink bottle filled with water and ask the steward to refill it as necessary.

Packing and Flying tips

Cultural  Japanese people hardly ever speak frankly. Instead they say what they think you want to hear or what will save face for them. You will also need to be diplomatic in what you say, even if it is not your culture.   Like the Maori culture, mana (dignity) is very important. It is commonly referred to as „face.‟ When negotiating try to create a win-win situation. Confrontation is a last resort. There is a real contrast across Japan in terms of how people live. Some live in high rise apartments with all the mod-cons, others live in traditional dwellings that are often exposed to the elements.   Realise that smiles don‟t always mean happiness. Japanese people smile when they are embarrassed or worried. Be aware that the system of “connections” is an integral part of Japanese culture. The Japanese would not necessarily see it as bribery, but more as a way of ensure things go 9

smoothly thanks to their contacts with people in the know. It is not too dissimilar to the western notion of „you scratch my back, I‟ll scratch yours.”  Food Japanese cuisine will be an awesome experience for the uninhibited! Japanese people say they‟ll eat anything with four legs except a table. It is recommended that you forget about kiwi food for the two weeks you are away and indulge in Japanese food as much as possible. Japanese food in Japan tastes very different to some Japanese food in Auckland… its sooo much better! Japanese also drink a lot of tea Eating Etiquette Slurping is not only unavoidable with many Japanese dishes; it‟s actually encouraged as a way of showing appreciation for the food. Avoid stabbing items with your chopsticks, or leaving them poked vertically into something. In situations were food is being shared from a common set of dishes in the middle it is polite practise to turn your chopsticks around when serving someone else or yourself. When sharing dishes, it is also polite to take small amounts, as necessary, rather than piling your plate up. Your host may put more food on your plate as an empty plate indicates the person is still hungry! If you are getting full leave some food on your plate rather than trying to finish off every last morsel. The same applies to beverages. Avoid being rude about any Japlish わせいえいご(incorrect Japanese-English) you see on signs, or about mistakes Japanese people may make in using English.

Tour report This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Each student will be expected to participate in entering 10

thoughts and comments into the Trip Journal. You may also consider taking a small notebook to keep a travel log/ journal yourself. Writing things when they are still fresh in your mind will help you when you are labelling photos and talking to people on your return. Follow up Upon your return, be prepared to talk about your trip, as many people will be really interested to hear about what for them is quite a foreign culture. School assembly, form time, morning break, the school magazine are all ways in which to share your experience. Make the most of it and try to highlight the positive rather than dwell on any difficulties. You will all have a task to complete next term so make sure you read about it at the back of this booklet.
