BBQ with club members

Hi! It sure has been a while, hasn’t it? Yesterday, I had a barbecue party on the riverside as club activities. I talked a lot with students in the second and third and fourth year of a university after a long time, because I couldn’t take part in a summer camp of this circle. So I was very glad to see them and friends of same ages. And we separated into four groups to barbecue. We were very hungry, but it took one hour to make a fire with charcoal. After that, we ate sausages, beef, potato, mushrooms and so on with music. At the same time, I remembered the party in the Nikki’s house. I really miss all members…

Hi! How are you doing? On this Monday to Tuesday, I took a drive to Yamanashi with my friend. Yamanashi is the central part of Honshu. We visited sunflowers field. It’s a place where Japanese movie was filmed. It called ‘ima ainiikimasu’ in Japanese. In English, ‘I’ll see you now’. Do you know it? The movie is one of the most favorite movies for me. But it was rainy for two days. So we couldn’t see the beautiful sight clearly. And we had ice cream at a dairy farm. It was very delicious. Although it was bad condition, I had a very good time. Recently, the bad and humidity weather continued. I remember the good weather in America every day.

I want to back to America!

Hi!! Thank you for everything! I learned a lot of things during this program, for example, the difference between Japanese culture and American culture and so on. But I couldn’t speak in English what I want to tell. So I feel that I should study more about not only language but also history of America and Japan.
Then, when I came back to Japan, I felt that I want to see you! Yesterday, I slept all day. So I’m fine now. But I miss you too much. I want to back to America. So I’ll visit you someday after I’ll become to speak English well and I save money. I’m looking forward to see you again and have meal with you and play some activities with you.
I’m so thankful beyond words. If you visit Japan, I’ll guide you. So please tell me then.

Shopping & active day!

Hi!! We went to Hornbake Library for tour. I was surprised that there are many books, newspaper and magazines of Japanese history. And most of them are not in Japan, so they are very precious things. I thought that most of historical materials of Japan are kept in Japan, but it’s not true. So I’d like to know other historical things all around the world.

In the evening, we went to a supermarket a department store. Before that I and Lisa and Kyoko came across an amusing happening. Nikki was very amusing then. And I bought some funny things and souvenir for my friends and family and my pets. For example, confectionery, some lip chaps, cat and dog collars and accessories.

Next, we went to batting center. It was very difficult, but I was very interesting. Lisa and Emily and I played it seriously. I’d like to go to the batting center and practice more in Japan. I had a lot of fun!! I want to enjoy the last day with everyone!!

Good bye D.C!

Yesterday, we went to The Capital building. I was surprised that It was a huge building. I couldn’t listen to two guides, so I couldn’t understand about the construction. But the building was very beautiful. Next, we went to White House and took picture. We came back to College Park and we had the Middle East food. I ordered mixed grill. It was very delicious. And we met Joe’s friends. They are very kindly. Yesterday was the last day in D.C. I’d like to enjoy for last two days.

We visited Nikki’s house yesterday. It was a very large house and garden. There are many amusement facilities, for example, billiards and a basketball hoop and a hammock and wii and so on. First, I played bowling by wii with Nikki’s father, Kyoko and Lisa. He is very good at bowling. It was very delightful. Next, we had a very delicious dinner. During the dinner, we talked about the difference between American university and Japanese university. I had a precious time. After that, I played boxing with Emily by wii. It was very tired but I enjoyed. I’d like to play again with her. Then, I played basketball with Nikki and some of AGU members. And we talked about UFO enthusiastically. Actually, we believe it… I think so. And we also talked about Mr. Children. Then, we played animal game by changing animals to some AGU members. About who?? Please guess! I had a very very good time! Thank you for your invitation, Nikki!

for three great days!

On Friday 8, we watched baseball game. There were many people, so I was excited. Although I don’t usually watch baseball game, I love sports and always watch koushien in Japan. It is the All-Japan High School Baseball Championship Tournament. It’s very great! And, the baseball game was many Orioles’ home runs. Lastly, the Orioles won. Then, we watched beautiful fireworks. They were very powerful. I was even more excited.

On Saturday 9, we went to the National air & Space Museum. There are many kinds of airplanes. And I watched 3D Sun on movie. I spent $8.5, but I fell asleep. It was very wasteful, but I felt very good. So it was OK!! Then we played volleyball again. I’m so tired, but I had a lot fun.

On Sunday 10, we went to the top of Washington Monument. From the view of the top was great! I could all buildings in Washington D. C. And we played volleyball and basketball. I enjoyed them very much.
