MURRAY, Ky -- A group of about 25 Japanese students visited Calloway County High School this week as part of the Bridge to Tomorrow project.

A group of Calloway students visited Japan in the summer, so the Japanese students made the trip here.  During their visit, the students took part in several educational activities in the school, including a hands-on project with the high school's agriculture teacher, making boutonnieres.

Masayko Nakamura, the Japanese language teacher at Calloway County High School, said it is important the students are aware of other cultures.

The Japanese students will attend the high school's football game tonight before flyign back to Japan on Sunday.
