Amos Santwien: Student Japanese visitors

October 25, 2013 

I enjoyed “Friendship across cultures” (Oct. 23, Page B1) about the Japanese students visiting Johansen High School. This program has been going on for 22 years with Modesto City Schools. Also involved are Downey, Davis, Ceres, Turlock and Oakdale high schools. The total graduation class from Kyoto came this year, 239 students. The program has been successful because of the great host families in the Stanislaus County area. Thank you to all involved.
