I’ve been fortunate enough to get out of middle school work/boredom after lunch for the past two Fridays to attend Kamikaifu-sho Matsuri and Senamikko Matsuri. Each grade, 1~6, prepares their own attraction for the rest of the school, visiting kindergarteners, preschoolers, teachers, and parents to enjoy. Haunted houses, obstacle courses, rope climbs, chopstick-tissue-catch, basketball, darts, bowling, golf, fishing, ring-toss, and a box maze were only a few of the offerings. This is probably comparable to our 4th of July Block Party as a kid. One of Hiki-sensei’s students told her that he was so excited, he could hardly sleep the night before!!
