BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. (PSPINC) sponsored its first Summer Experience in Seattle from July 26 - August 7. The program was created to give children from the Tohoku region of Japan, one of the hardest hit areas in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, a chance to build positive experiences in the wake of tragedy. Eight junior high students stayed with host families during their visit.
The students spent their mornings attending English lessons at Bellevue Children's Academy. They toured the Seattle area and spent time with their host families during the rest of the day. The children visited the Pacific Science Center's Tutankhamen exhibit, a Mariners game, and Mt. Rainier. They also were able to tour and lunch on a Holland America cruise ship and go on a Tillicum Village tour. On the final day, the children toured the Boeing factory and visited Microsoft, where they played new games and each received an Xbox as a gift from the Xbox team.
PSPINC received support and cooperation from several businesses for Summer Experience in Seattle, including:
- Delta Airlines Japan
- The Marriott Hotel in Redmond Town Center
- Enterprise Rental Cars
- Pacific Science Center
- Holland America Line
- Argosy Cruises
- Bellevue Children's Academy

"I am very happy to see the smiles of the children and hope that they gained memorable experiences they will carry into the future," says Mayumi Nakamura, President and CEO of PSPINC. "The goal and the purpose is that we can provide them some time to forget - they're still recovering in Japan and the Miyagi area. We hope to continue hosting this program into the future, so as to continue helping the children."
