‘Happy Kids’ Event 〜Photo Report〜

On Sunday August 3rd the Kanoya International Exchange Association hosted the inaugural edition of ‘Happy Kids’. This event was held in the Kanoya Chuo Community Centre.

Japanese and foreign residents gathered in the morning to make BLT sandwiches and fruit punch, and then after we had eaten, we decorated glass wind chimes (‘fuurin’) in the afternoon.

We had over 50 participants and staff on the day, making this event a great opportunity to meet new people. Once again we were able to deliver some international atmosphere to the residents of Kanoya.

Below are some photos of the day’s events.
