Trip to Miami and the Grand Canyon

Hi, I’m one of BLIP14. A few days ago I visited Miami and Arizona as a trip. We could see the beautiful south beach in Miami and Grand Canyon in Arizona afterwards. I thought that both places totally differents from Boston even though these places are in America, so I recommend you to go to different places if you have time. You’re gonna know America more. This 10 days experience became my treasure in my life. I’m gonna enjoy the least spring vacation with my sunburned skin:D

Showa Open House

Showa Boston held an open house for the local community on Saturday, March 28th. Students shared pieces of Japanese culture with children and adults, including kimono try on, tea ceremony, and and koto playing. Many attendees expressed interest in joining our Showa Friendship Circle.

Please check out the pictures below!

Kakehashi Project

On March 10th, Showa students presented at the University of Massachusetts, Boston as part of the Kakehashi project. The audience was filled with UMass students. The theme of these fun and interactive presentations was “Cool Japan,” and students presented on such topics as Izakaya, parikura, and the 2020 Olympics.

Showa Boston President Dr. Frank Schwartz, as well as Student Services staff, were in attendance.

Disney World and Universal Studios

Hello. This is Wing5. This time, I’m going to write about a trip to Orlando.

I went to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios for six days and five nights.

Actually, I was filled with anxiety because it was the first time in my life to travel with friend.

But I’ve never been to Orlando, so I really enjoyed staying there.

↑ This is in the hotel!!

In addition, traveling to Orlando became a good experience to use English a lot.

Orlando was a really nice place. If you have a chance, I strongly recommend to travel there.

Lecture at Tufts

Hi, we’re BLIP14. It’s almost spring in Boston.

Now we’re spending the spring vacation. Some people travel other countries, and some go to a language school. Also, recently, mission students came to Showa Boston, so we try to help them:)

On Monday, March 9, we went to Tufts University for the event which the Tufts Japanese Culture Club is inviting renowned speaker Daniel P. Aldrich, from Purdue University, to Tufts discuss the recovery of Japan after the tsunami and earthquake disaster in 2011.

We took his lecture about the factors responsible for the outcomes with Tufts students. During the lecture, I recalled when I went through the earthquake in Tokyo. It’s sad to say at least, but we have to focus on recovering the town, I thought again.

ボストンは数週間前に比べると、だいぶ暖かくなりました。春が待ち遠しいです。

日本の皆さん、花粉にお気を付けて:)

Weekly Update

Cranes on the Square

Date: March 7, 2015

Three BLIP 14 students went to Copley on Sunday to teach members of the Boston community how to fold paper cranes. The goal of the event is to get the public involved in an activity that brings awareness to the tragedy that occurred in Japan four years ago and to remind them of the survivors who continue to rebuild from the wreckage. Students shared their memories a bit while teaching how to fold paper cranes.
