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!
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!
Hi, I’m Rei from Wing2. I had been in New York during this winter vacation. I spent a great time there through Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Spending New Year’s Eve in Time’s Square was top of my dream in my life. I was glad that my dream came true. However, standing for a long time in crowded Time’s Square was harder than I expected. I thought I don’t want to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Time’s Square again though it was really amazing. It was the most delightful moment in my life here the United States. I hope everyone will have a great year.
