Cultural Activities Day

Location: Toin - Yokohama, Japan

On Monday 17 October the Toin teachers organised workshops in a variety of Japanese disciplines. They enjoyed flower arranging, calligraphy, origami, koto, and the tea ceremony. We also got changed into Japanese Yukata and sang the Japanese folk song 'Sakura' together at the end.

Andy learning to write his own last name beautifully on calligraphy paper.

Jack and I were a team and started the day off with flower arranging.

Jamie said he found the Koto rather hard to play. Here he is learning how to play 'Sakura' on the Koto.

The origami was also enjoyable. They taught us how to make many things out of paper.

Most of the boys enjoyed calligraphy the most. Here Daniel is writing the character for 'Spring'.

Mr. Sam Rawstorn also gave the folwer arranging a go.

Let's try and make something other than the 'Paper Crane' for a change.

Milan chose the character 'Dragon' for his calligraphy piece.

Playing the Koto was Jack's favourite activity. He was really good at it too!

A final photo in our Yokata with all the teachers. It was a great day.

The boys found it really hard to sit in their legs for the tea ceremony. You can tell Daniel is feeling uncomfortable. It is tough for foreigners who are not used to it.
