The last day with my host family was filled with lots of fun and adventure. After our team's visit to Nippon Steel, we presented at the Tokai City Rotary Club. The team then split up for the day for special events which our host family planned. I visited a very old home (80 years old) owned by Inoue,who is a City Counciler for the city of Tokoname. Her husband's father owned the building and had his dental office upstairs. Hte building is now used as a neighborhood bar and coffee shop. It is very narrow but extremely long with gardens separating various rooms.
We next went to one of many pottery shops in Tokoname, a very famous town for pottery makers. I received a quick lesson and then was turned loose to make my own bowl. My teacher had to do a little repair but I did get a nice bowl finished. It takes a month to fully finish the bowl so I will have it mailed to me after I get home.
