On March 30, we had a Japanese Spring Festival at MiraCosta Oceanside campus!
In Japan, spring is a really special season. Because the winter of Japan is so long and cold, we wait for the arrival of spring seriously. That is why, in many parts of Japan, we celebrate it as a festival called “Matsuri” The Japanese Club at MiraCosta planned the activities on campus. It was so fun for the club and the rest of the campus!
12:00-1:00… Taiko (Japanese traditional musical instrument) and Japanese jazz performance
1:00-3:00… Japanese cultural activities
During that event, we have some Japanese foods, such as chicken teriyaki bowl, and some Japanese treats, such as this picture, green tea cupcakes. Especially this cupcakes look so beautiful and there is the symbol of Japan; cherry blossoms on the top. Everyone enjoyed it with tastes and their eyes.
These are the pictures of cultural activities. We had Hukuwarai (making-face game), balloon catch, gold fish catch, calligraphy, and ring toss. A lot of children came to the event and everyone enjoyed these activities. That was really good opportunity to know Japanese culture.
