2015 Goodwill Mission

From Michigan to Shiga, Japan

The Michigan-Shiga Sister State Board would like to invite you to accompany us on the 2015 Goodwill Mission Trip to Shiga, Japan, Michigan’s Sister State. Trip co-coordinators are Kathee McDonald and Marilyn Schlief. Our trip has openings for 35 Michigan participants, and we would be honored if you could travel with us to experience this trip of a lifetime.

We are offering a 11-day package which includes:
  • Round trip air fare from Lansing to Nagoya
  • Ground travel in Japan
  • Hotel accommodations and most meals
  • Luggage transfers
  • English speaking Interpreter/Tour Guide
  • Tours & Unique Cultural Experiences
One of the highlights of this trip will be a 5-day stay in the home of a Japanese family. You will meet their families, friends and neighbors, experiencing the true Japanese traditions. Friendships will be formed that last a lifetime.

As of January 2015, the cost of the trip is $2,700 per person. This is subject to change based upon final delegate count, exchange rates, and airline taxes & fuel surcharges. Delegates will be advised as soon as any price increases are known.

The attached application form must be filled out by each individual traveling to Japan. A deposit of $200 must accompany the application when submitted, no later than May 1, 2015.

If you are applying for your passport, we suggest you do so as soon as possible, as we will need a copy of your passport by July 1, 2015.

An orientation meeting has been scheduled in the Lansing Area (Date and Location TBD). We will start our meeting at 11:00 AM and will finish by 3:00 PM. A lunch will be provided during the meeting. As a delegate, you are expected to attend and will be receiving detailed information about the trip; including a power point presentation, hints on gifting, customs, overview of the areas we will see, handouts and an opportunity for you to ask questions on any concerns you might have.

If you have any questions about this wonderful opportunity, please contact Kathee McDonald at 517.388.1308 or mcdon288@gmail.com. If you use e-mail, please title your message in the subject line as “2015 GWM Trip”.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Kathee McDonald & Marilyn Schlief
