Today I went to our college's school festival with my friend Undariya (she's from Mongolia!). It was great seeing all the students' hard work paying off.
From what I understand, school festivals are a big deal in Japan. All the clubs spend tons of time in preparation, and everyone participates somehow. It's like our International Festival at Soka--which makes sense, considering the school was founded in Japan.
The biggest attraction at this festival was undoubtedly the food! I ate a lot, since everything was delicious and reasonably priced.
(The view in the french fry pic was taken from one of our campus' buildings, it's a very popular spot due to its scenic nature.)
This just just some of the food I ate there. I also had some delicious karage, ice cream, and banana chocolate gyoza (they're like mini crepes!). I will definitely eat well this weekend, since the school is right next to my dorm building.
We had a lot of fun and ate tons of food! I'll probably go back tomorrow again to eat more. It was definitely a nice break from school... Classes are seriously kicking my butt, and lately I haven't gotten the chance to go out on the weekends. So today was a long-awaited fun day to enjoy the school.
