THE Saipan mayor’s office on Friday briefed 10 local students who will participate in the Sanpoen exchange program in Japan next month.

Special assistant to the mayor Henry Hofschneider and student exchange program coordinator Yuki Kishimoto conducted the briefing which was also attended by the students’ parents.

Kishimoto said last year, the Sanpoen group in Japan sent students to Saipan.

“So this is our turn to send Saipan students to Japan,” she added.

The program is available for public and private school students from 6th to 12th grades.

Kishimoto said the Saipan students will fly to Japan on Feb. 5 and stay there for six days.

They will visit government offices in Kyoto and Nagano, the Kyoto Zoo, the Nijo Castle, the Toei Kyoto Studio Park, the Izutsu Yatsuhashi pastry shop, and Joyama Elementary School.

Kishimoto said Japanese host families will provide accommodations to the Saipan students.

The students will pay for their airfare, but Sanpoen will take care of their lodgings, meals, and transportation in Japan.

This will be the 37th Saipan-Japan student exchange organized and sponsored by the Sanpoen group.
