Japan Journey Day 3 Graduation and Tokyo Harbor Cruise

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ June 17, 2017

Grandson Thomas graduated from American School in Japan. I am delighted to say that the ceremony had a sense of dignity that did not include the air horns and raucus catcalls that have become a part of so many graduations.

Founded in 1902, Frank Lloyd Wright designed an early building for ASIJ which was never built. One of the top-rated international schools, the flags on the platform show the nations represented in their student body.
We celebrated with a cruise in a yakatabune, a traditional low barge style boat. 
Complete with dinner.
Tokyo Harbor is stunningly beautiful.
And lots of Karaoke singing. Karaoke, now that's something else I never thought I'd do. You truly never know what your grandchildren will get you into.

Wow! Great pictures. Looks like everyone had a fantastic time.

Indeed, we did, Sheila! And so proud of our grandson--he's headed to Cornell.
-Donna, June 21, 2017

Congratulations! That's a very cool achievement. Does it mean you'll see more of him?
-Sheila Deeth, June 21, 2017

Hopefully also more of our second son and family who live near Boston. We find it hard to get to the east coast, so this will be a double pull.
-Donna, June 22, 2017

Our oldest is heading for DC soon, so we'll feel that eastward pull as well.
-Sheila Deeth, June 22, 2017

A good chance to get in some great sight-seeing you done eastern US
