The 23rd APCC Officially Begins!

After leaving home early, we arrived early at the airport to pick up the first bunch of smiling JAs, PAs, and chaperons.  We were loaded on to buses and a quick one hour journey north of Fukuoka took us to the Marine House, where the JAs would spend their first night in the Land of the Rising Sun.  For the next 3 days, the Marine House was a buzz with children coming from the airport or leaving after one night to meet their host families and get settled in to a Japanese lifestyle.

On the 18th, every APCC participant had checked through the doors of the Marine House and was fit and healthy, ready for a fun summer in Fukuoka.
