Bunkasai School Festival Part 3 (Activities and closing ceremony "Lisa Con")

I went to the Japanese Archery club with my host brother to do archery. It was so much fun!

My host mom and brother came too and they got so many gifts for me in a ring throwing game (輪投げ)!! Also, my fellow exchange student Niklas got me a present in that game too!!! I'm so happy! They're all my treasures that I will keep forever.

This is my senpai from MES club and he's so cute!!! Yes, he's a guy. He looks so good as girl though. If I were a guy, I would totally fall for her!

On the other hand, this!

After the fireworks I grabbed Toyo senpai for a picture together... He's so cute OMG I lost T.T

This is the end of Bunkasai with lots of fatigue accumulated throughout this week. Today was the clean up day even though it's a Sunday but it's very fun and memorabe.

Bunkasai School Festival Part 2 (MesDonald's and liveshows+kendo club)

The club I'm helping with is called MES (as I mentioned in my last post) and we did a restaurant called MESDonald's, selling drinks and fries. The club members are very kind and friendly so it made my shifts very enjoyable. We were sold out quite fast on both days since the price was very cheap and the fries are surprisingly amazingly tasty!

完売 (sold out)

After my shifts were over I met my friends and together, we toured the school doing different activities. Our school has a Pop music club which has rock bands and chorus in it. This is one of the bands performing on stage.

On another stage the acrobatics club was performing too.

After the live show, I went to the Kendo club because I promised my classmate to play their game, which is finding colourful plastic balls in a bunch of balloons. It's harder than you think!!

Found one!

Bunkasai School Festival Part 1 (my class)

Today was the last day of my school's Bunkasai (文化祭)!! It's a school festival where all the classes and clubs come up with an activity to sell and present to the public for two days. My class was a Japanese themed restaurant (namedおいでやす一の二) selling wrap sticks (tortillas with meat sauce, corn and tuna in them) and a club I joined was called MES Club, which is for exchange students and international learning, is selling fries as "MesDonald's". It was extremely fun and useful because it really helped me to know everybody in my class and connect with them.

We had some problems like not enough materials to make it until the end of the day or a lack of people for the different shifts but overall it went well and I'm so proud of my class and club!

The time we had to prepare for the festival was two days which, trust me, is very busy and still not enough time. My school is rather new so it has lots of new things going on.
There's a leader kind of person in each class who decides everybody's shifts and the amount of money we spend on each thing. I was first put in the cooking team but since I had to leave for my shift at MESDonald's I was transferred to the commercial team. Basically, I just walk around the school or stand in front of our class and tell people what we are selling and try to get the most customers into our restaurant as possible. I personally think this is the best shift for me because I surprisingly have a loud voice!
