Senior's Soulful Adventures in Seoul
The 12th Grader's trip to Seoul marks the first overseas grade trip at Seisen.
This year’s seniors were the first to go overseas for their senior school trip. Interviewing the seniors, it seems like they had an enjoyable time in Seoul. A couple of seniors agreed, saying that it was cool and felt good to be the first batch of seniors to go to Korea. They also talked about how different the reality was from their expectations.

Still, the Koreans undoubtedly were friendly and showed gestures of kindness. Another significant difference between the two countries included the fact that the food in Korea was much spicier than what we have in Japan. A big part of travelling somewhere different is about making memories that will last forever and enjoying them with your friends, which is exactly what the seniors did. For instance, the girls all went on a breathtaking cruise on their second day, which to Maanya C.
This trip can be deemed a successful one, since everyone arrived safely back to Japan, and in high spirits. We hope the batches who will travel abroad next year and in the years to come will also have a nice trip.
