... It made a gigantic circle with many staircases. 3 floors (I think).
We stopped by many classrooms and the students were very happy to see us. They all smiled and waved and laughed. Our tour guide was the English teacher, Ted. He showed us many rooms and talked about the school. This high school was the only one in Tsuroka that had an art program. On our back to the room, we looked in on a class with students majoring in care for elderly people.
