Are you finished high school and don't know what to do? If you are into sports you can go to a sports only university where the three R's would be a minor concern. Yayoi's brother has taught at and been president of universities that specialize in agriculture. Currently he is president of a college in Sendai that teaches veterinary assistant skills. If you don't want to go to university, then maybe cooking is your forte. On November 11, 2012 Kenji-san picked us up to go to Tsukuba City. On the way we stopped in at a cooking school where his sister Etsuko-san teaches. Every time we get together with Etsuko-san there seems to be good food involved as two of the photographs can attest to.
Here in two buildings students were being taught a variety of cooking skills and merchandising as well. Kenji-san and Etsuko-san purchased some of the products and we sampled the tasty treats. The booths used to sell the products are a common sight in Japan wherever people gather. Some people like to be photographed and others? Two of three girls kept ducking down whenever the camera pointed at the second story window.
