In the photo, Klingman poses in her graduation gown. Students were given a choice of modern or traditional dress; Klingman's yukata features dragonflies, a Japanese symbol of good fortune. The photo was taken in the home of Asako Endo, Klingman's host mother, in Kita Uonuma-gun.
"I am more than happy to speak with any BMC students or alumnae who are interested in working or studying in Japan," Klingman says. Contact her via email; for more information, see www.iuj.ac.jp.
