Okayama was on American news!

My mom sent me a link the other day to a story about Okayama that was on the CBS Evening News, which is a national news program that is shown every weeknight. About 6 million people watch it each night for an hour. CBS is kind of like NHK in Japan - it is a free national TV network that shows the same programs to everyone.

This story is about a boy from Okayama named Takuto Kawakami, who is a tour guide at Korakuen. He is 10 years old, and his English is amazing! His pronunciation is especially good.

The video is only about 2 minutes, but now 6 million people know a little about Korakuen!

There is also an article that has most of the information in text if you want to follow along with the video:
