It was also good to see fresh new faces and meet new friends and readers of my blog especially high school students and other young persons who after reading many of my posts have grown to love Japan more and more. The Japanese calendars were awarded to persons who took part in various activities such as origami, calligraphy and various Japan-related question and answer sessions. I scored by own Japanese calendar loot from writing Kanji, I chose to write the characters for day æ—¥ and bright æ˜Ž. Extra entertainment came in the form of performances by young gymnasts from the Nishida Gynastics and Fitness Center.
Sorry there are no videos this year (someone forgot the video camera) but I have lots of photos from the day for your viewing pleasure below. Didn’t make it to the Japanese Culture and Calendar Exhibition this year? There is always next year!
