Tokyo, Japan – The Philippine Embassy in Tokyo ended the school year by welcoming 50 kindergarten students from GG Kids International School of Tokyo to the chancery.

During the visit, the students were given a short presentation by the Embassy cultural section on the Philippines, including its people, culture, flora and fauna.  The children listened to a Filipino story on the legend of the pineapple, and showed great interest on the National Museum of the Philippines’ traveling exhibit on the piña-seda.

For the past years, the Embassy has been collaborating with both public and private schools in Tokyo to provide kindergarten children and Japanese high school students with an opportunity to meet with Embassy officials and learn more about the Philippines.

In February of this year, the Embassy opened its doors to 50 high school students from Chofu Junior High School and Mita High School. The students asked about the country’s form of government and tourist destinations.
