The US Consulate-General of Naha and SKF Okinawa hosted “The Education Lecture & English Book Reading” event, in which Shin Koyamada inspired elementary students at the Nago City Ryokufu Gakuen Elementary School in Nago City, Okinawa to pursue their dreams, goals, and study English.
A representative from the Consulate-General welcomed and spoke about Koyamada to teachers and over 100 students at the school's gymnasium then introduced him. For the next 15 minutes, Koyamada read in English from the book "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" then played a video version of the book.
Smiling, laughing and having a wonderful time with Koyamada, the entertained kids watched and listened with great unabashed joy. Some of the children memorized phrases from the book.
