Nagano, Japan & Rwanda - Part 2

Making Videos, Making Friends:
Nagano Meets Rwanda - Part 2

In March 2018, for the premier episode of Kids Meet the World, five 6th-graders from Sanbonyanagi Elementary School in Nagano made a "video letter" and sent it to an elementary school about two hours outside Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. The snowy landscape of faraway Japan made a big impression on the Rwandan kids, and inspired them to make a reply video about their school, favorite stuff, and more! How will it turn out, and how will those five Japanese kids react?
