Day 1: September 29, 2014
Upon arriving at Narita Airport and after fixing problems regarding immigration, we were fetched by Mr. Kei Nakayama, our Japanese coordinator. While some of my co-delegates were exchanging pesos to yen, I observed the airport.

We went to APA Hotel in Chiba by bus. Upon arriving at the hotel, room assignments were distributed and the dinner place and time was announced.
During the dinner, Mrs. Hitomi Yamada was introduced to us as our interpreter. Then, after the dinner, we discussed about our cultural presentation.
After a number of suggestions by my active co-delegates, it was decided that we group ourselves into the three main islands, Luzon (my group), Visayas and Mindanao. We were given limited time to discuss, so the Luzon group had a finalized the idea to perform a Panagbenga dance.
