Japanese Culture Day

We had such a special day!  Starting with an Elementary parade, students walked around the school showing their creativity and uniqueness in Japanese themed costumes. We learned how to make rakugan with Aron’s mother, followed by partaking in a Japanese Tea Ceremony with a real Master of Tea Ceremony Artist, Uma’s grandmother. This was followed by a special Koto performance by Kokoro and Haruka’s mothers. There was even a smaller sized Koto that the children could try. They learned how to play the piece, “Sakura.” We ate a very filling and delicious Japanese potluck lunch made by parents in the class with sushi, karaage, yakisoba, and more. After that we combined classes with the Grade 7s. We had several game stations, teaching each other different kinds of traditional and non-traditional Japanese games such as waribashideppo、tarumasanngakoronda, and fukuwarai. Finally we ended the day with assembly gathering of the whole school singing famous Japanese songs. What an absolutely exciting day.
