Manabiya Iowa New Academic Year

Manabiya new academic year has started on April 1st.  We celebrated our first day with some fun activities such as slide show of Japanese school year, games and making the signs for the doors followed by a pot luck party.  Hiyoko Club kids and families joined and had a chance to get to know each other better. 
 
A new student joined us in mid April.  Now nine students are leaning the language as well as the culture through small learning groups and project base "theme learning."  Currently, we are busy with the dance practice for the performance at CelebrAsian.  The Japanese performance on the stage starts at 2:00 p.m. on May 27th.  Please look forward to seeing us dancing "Sakura Yosakoi."
 
Manabiya will be also be at the cultural tent at CelebrAsian.  We will have some Japanese games and water Yo-Yo sale.  Please come stop by our tent and enjoy the event!
