Green tea powder sits in a cup before being stirred and warmed during the closing portion of the mikan-giving ceremony at the Matthew C. Perry Elementary School here Feb. 5, 2013.
The mikan is regarded as a symbol of Japan's prominent agricultural export business. Twenty boxes of mikans were given to the school. The children offered American sweets, showing their appreciation for the mikans.
