Manabiya Iowa

February was full of activities at Manabiya Iowa.  We started the month with the celebration of spring coming by bean throwing with Hiyoko Club kids.  The students of Manabiya had learned about soy beans and the soy bean products that would be used for cooking on our party at the end of year party.

They also had a chance to learn a little bit of Hayao Miyazaki and watched the movie "The Wind Rises" that he most recently created, fiction based on a real person who was the designer/engineer of Zero fighter.  To watch movies help them learn about the Japanese living, customs, culture and the way who they are.

For March, we will celebrate "Hinamatsuri" which is a girls/doll festival with Hiyoko Club.  We will pray for the healthy and happiness of young girls.
There will be a story telling, singing some songs, crafts and other activities.
Please let us know if you would like to join us.
