HELLO & WELCOME ♥

First entry!

Hello, folks! So, I finally decided to start up a blog of my life in Japan. I've been living here since August 2009 and work as an English Teacher. It's been a wonderful experience. I have met fantastic people, travelled immensely in this country and neighboring ones and eaten such amazingly good food!!

Until my next entry, I'll leave you with pictures from one of my junior high school's sports festival that occurred a week ago. Sport festivals (or Undoukai in Japanese) is an annual event that takes place at all elementary, junior and high schools. The entire school body (including the teachers) is divided into two teams: red team and white team (aka dan and shiro dan). They compete against each other in various sports events (like relays). I had so much fun with the students and they also enjoyed my company. :D


The 1st year girls on the red team.



Each grade and class decorated the blackboard with encouraging
words. Did you notice that "WE CAN DO IT!!" is written on the board?

This school is my largest junior high school with 452 students. There is no
white team, but a blue team instead. The boys here are the captains of their
team. The girl is co-captain of the blue team. They are all 3rd years and will
graduate next year.

My 3rd year crazy boys. I love them.

Second year girls on the red team posing with their boarder mascot.
It was made by the students themselves. I've noticed that made Japanese
students are very talented drawers. The kanji (Japanese character) on the sign
means "red".

And that's it. Until next time!
