Participant - Mr. Hiroaki Oshima
Because I was chosen to be part of a goodwill exchange between Kurashiki and Christchurch, I was able to visit Christchurch, New Zealand.
Probably the most exciting thing I did during my visit was a bungee jump. I also have many good memories of painting portraits of the people who very kindly invited me to Christchurch. I also brought some my paintings with me from Japan to give as presents. I was very happy to have been invited to two home parties. The food was very delicious and I had a fun time.
This time, I was only able to visit Christchurch for just two weeks. I think that the next time I visit there I would like to stay for at least two months!
