But for some of the 220 students who study Japanese at St. Paul’s School in Brooklandville, Monday offered an opportunity to show their skills for an expert guest: Japan’s ambassador to the United States
Japanese Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki and his wife, Yoriko, were accompanied by Takahisa Murakami, Counselor of Education for the Japanese Embassy, and Takayuki Iriya, Fujisaki’s first secretary, to sample Japanese educational offerings at St. Paul’s School in Brooklandville.
