Hello! I’m Momoka from Wing9. We have only a few days left. My last volunteer at Manning Elementary School and British School will finish this week.
At Manning Elementary School, I taught origami, hiragana and janken to American kids every Tuesday and Thursday. At British School, I taught hiragana and katakana, read some books in Japanese and show some Japanese children’s story anime to the students who had Japanese parents or mother.
These volunteer were very fun and kinds are so lovely! I’ll miss them and never forget their shiny smile!

Hello! We are Wing 9 students!
We have only 3 weeks left, so recently we tried to go out and eat delicious food. We went to Boston Burger Company and The Salty Pig to eat hamburger and pizza. Both of them were so big but not so expensive. You should try to go there. We recommend these restaurants!
Hello!! We’re Wing 9!!
On January 6th, we celebrated coming of age!! We had a party in one of the oldest hotel in Boston, Omni Parker Hotel. We enjoyed a special meal, especially Boston cream pie. After the meal, everyone including teachers danced and it as very fun!
Keeping with yesterday’s theme, here are some extra photos from the festival itself. Special thanks our Showa Soran Bushi performers and to the Wellesley College Taiko Group for being involved.
Here are some additional photos of Showa Boston’s annual festival, held last month. Our students worked hard to make the event a success, but these pictures show that they had some fun as well!

We had Thanksgiving Day for the first time. Thanksgiving Day is most important holiday for Americans. Many American people have a dinner with their family on the day, or many people travel. People usually have a special big dinner such as turkey, pies and so on. We actually ate turkey in Showa. And many stores discounted items on the weekend. So we went shopping. It was good deal!!
We enjoyed Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.
Hello. We are wing 9.
Last Sunday, I did volunteering at Boston Common. That day, Pumpkin Float Festival was held on the Frog Pond. Before the event began, I helped to decorate the area around the pond, set up tables, preparing pumpkins, etc.
During the event, I sold balloons. That day was very windy, so I was worried that I released balloons into the sky. But it was okay. Many people came the event and bought balloons. They almost sold out!
At the last of the event, a lot of pumpkins floated on the pond, and it was so beautiful and fantastic.
I could communicate with many people through this volunteer work, and it was great experience for me to do volunteering with local people. I enjoyed this event so much!
Hello, we are wing 9
Last Friday, we went to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. This museum is about the memory of John F. Kennedy who was thirty-fifth president of the U.S. We could learn his personal history. It showed how people loved him and won the election. Of course, there was the story of his assassination.
There was a Japanese doll which was gift for his daughter, Caroline, from Japan, so we could feel the connection between the U.S and Japan.
November 8th, there was the president election. We watched it on TV and were excited. This experience made us be interested in the U.S politic, so we glad to be here at this time.
