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!
We went to Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for field trip. The big building so I couldn’t go around. There are many parts. For example, America, Europe, Asia and contemporary art. I like all these pictures.
I’m looking forward to going Harvard next week!
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!!
American students who will study at Showa Tokyo this summer visited Showa Boston for a Japanese culture orientation with students. Check out pictures of the event below!
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!
こんにちは！ボストンでの生活も残りわずか… 今週でManning Elementary SchoolとBritish Schoolでのボランティアも最後です。
Manning Elementary Schoolでは毎週火曜日、木曜日におりがみやひらがな、じゃんけんなどをアメリカ人の子供たちに教えました。British Schoolでは毎週金曜日に両親またはお母さんが日本人の子供たちにひらがなやカタカナを教えたり、日本語で読み聞かせをしたり、昔話のアニメを見せたりしました。
I went to The Breakers in January. I went for the first time. The Breakers was a big house. I was
very surprised. And The Breakers has a big garden and I saw the Ocean from the garden.
The sea was so beautiful. And inside the house was very luxury. Because the wall and the ceiling was decorated
gold and stone came all over the world. And these were drawn paintings. The Breakers was like castle
and I want to live there.
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!
