Hello, It’s Kayoko from wing9.
In April 17th, Showa Boston was no school because of Patriot’s Day. I went to closest station from Showa Bostin to see Boston Marathon. Boston Marathon is traditional event to Boston and America. I cheered every runner. Also, Japanese runner got 3rd prize! I didn’t see his nice run but I was glad to hear that news!
Boston Marathon holds in Patriots’ Day (Massachusetts holiday! No class!!). The day of 1775, Battles of Lexington and Concord happened. This war is the beginning of Independence War. I knew Boston Marathon but I didn’t know why it begin. I want to know about American history more!
Hello, It’s Kayoko from wing9. I start to vlog this semester. I try to write only English every time.
In April 16th, it was Easter!! I went to Church. I watched in upstairs, so I could see around the church. Church choir sang many hymn. It was amazing!!
After that, I went to theatre to watch Beauty and The Beast. I know it hasn’t showed in Japan yet, so I was so happy to watch it earlier than Japan! It was awesome movie. I love it as same as animation. Watching movie without subtitle was difficult but it was good learning for me!
Climate of Boston is very changeable. Today was so hot like summer! However, next week will be cold again. We must be careful to catch a cold!!
Tonight Showa Boston will conduct a Japanese cultural orientation for American college students who will attend Showa Women’s University this summer. Stay tuned for pictures of the event!
March has been an active month at Showa with our university Early Education program and Junior High School Mission Program on campus. Now we are thrilled to welcome the new semester. This week Global Business students arrive, followed by Boston Spring next week. Stay tuned as we feature the upcoming semester in future posts!
Hello, this is wing 10.
Today, we will introduce one site that we have visited before, which is MIT!
Do you know MIT?
MIT stands for “Massachusetts Institute of Technology”.
It is private university in Massachusetts, and was founded in 1869.
MIT is one of the elite university all over the world.
This is the famous statue of MIT, which is in front of entrance. A lot of people take a picture with it. Of course, we did it too!
Also, there are a lot of buildings whose shape is very unique!
If you have opportunity to visit there, you will be able to enjoy it!
Hi from Wing2!
We’re Natsumi and Natsumu living in room 224. It has been 504 days since we came to Boston and we only have 8 days left. We are excited to see our family and friends in Japan but also we feel sad because we have shared the room for a year and half. We have spent time together for such a long time so it’s kind of weird that we are going to live apart. Anyway, we need to enjoy the rest of our life in Boston! It seems like most students have plans every single day until they leave, especially they are enjoying food. We often run into other Showa students in the city more than usual. 224 girls are foodies and of course we have a plan to eat out for dinner next week! We’re going to our favorite Spanish restaurants. One of good points in Boson is we can enjoy many kinds of food and Boston actually has a lot of good restaurants.
Hello. We are Wing 2.
However I have only 9 days until I go back to Japan so I went to Quincy Market, Trader Joe’s and Harvard to buy souvenir for my family and friends. I had a great time in Boston but this weekend is last weekend for me to enjoy Boston with my friends so I will spend a great weekend with no regrets.
