Sophia's trip to the hospital

Today, I missed a day of school to go to the doctors. I was not feeling well and the influenza was popular and my grandmother was worried I had it. Thankfully, I didn't have a fever or a cold, and was just a small stomach virus. After doing some blood tests they put an IV on me while I rested for a little while. The doctors were really friendly and took every good care of me. They gave me a blanket and checked in on me every few minutes to make sure I was okay. Thankfully, I got well quickly and was able to attend school the next day. I was supposed to be asleep and not on my phone but I was able to sneak my phone out and take some pictures of my experience.

Sophia's New Year fun

Today, me and my friends held a 新年会 (Shin-nen-kai, a get together to was to welcome the new year). It was Saturday after school, but since I didn't have to go I to school that day I wasn't wearing my uniform. We tried to make chocolate fondant but failed. It ended up being more like guacamole. It still tasted good I guess. Everyone brought a little something and it was fun shopping for the ingredients and marking the food. We sat in the Kotatsu and talked and ate a lot of snacks while watching TV. We had a lot of fun laughing and catching up on things we did during winter break. I enjoyed hanging out with them and I look forward to hanging out with them again.

Gage's trip over New Year holiday

This past winter break I went on a trip to Hakone, a great place south of Tokyo with many beautiful and scenic views. There is a huge lake there with an amazing ship at the harbor. I had a great time there. I saw Mt. Fuji and enjoyed a magnificent view of not only the mountain but also the town below. Afterwards, I went to a noodle shop and enjoyed soba and tea near the lake. Overall it was a great trip and I enjoyed it very much.

Gage's first impressions of Seiritsu

This past term has been my first at Seiritsu and I can say it has been the best term I have ever experienced in a school. From the excursions (where I took the photo below) to the simple daily classes, so far all has been a joy to experience. I look forward to what the next terms bring in the way of experience and education. My Japanese has improved greatly. And I hope to continue my education under the instruction of my various sensei.

William's E-sports adventures!

In this term, I entered the Seiritz e-sports team of league of legends, and became the captain.
Although our team is constructed of almost all newbies, my team mates always train very hard. That makes me feel responsibility to prove our team has a good experience in the match coming soon in December 25th and 26th.
The League of legends is a game which affected me a lot in my childhood. I got a lot of interests, excitement, relaxation and most importantly I got friendship through this game.
I can still remember when I was in middle school I went to the internet cafe with my homies, turned on the PCs and it felt like paradise from the stress of study. Now it's just like yesterday once more.
It's kind of dream for boys to play esports in school, and our school made this come true. Appreciated!

Amy's Farewell blog

Even though it's only half way through this month, this is my last week at Seiritsu and probably my last blog post. Already this month has been so fun!! After test week, which was a little harder than last time, my class friends and I went to Disneyland together. It was freezing cold and raining so much but thanks to that we didn't have to queue up for anything! It was so fun and I'm so happy to have been able to go with such great people.

As well as going to Disneyland, this month I've been saying goodbye to a lot of my family members as I probably won't see them again before I leave. I really want to thank them for everything they've done for me while I've been here and I'm gonna miss them so much :( Not just my family, I'm also going also so sad to leave all the great friends I've made at Seiritsu. My class friends have helped me in so many ways and have made my dream of going to Japanese high school a reality. Also, Sophia, Todd, Gaoussou, William, Rebecca and Zoya.

I've enjoyed international class with them so much and I can't imagine not seeing them everyday anymore :(( Especially Sophia, we've become such great friends and I'm so happy that she's part of my life.

Finally, Brent and JC are the ones that have done everything for me and I can't express how grateful I am. I've enjoyed my time at Seiritsu so much and could not imagine a better environment to go on exchange. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a super Happy New Year!!

Rebecca's eventful 4th term

This term at Seiritsu was really a busy one!

First our singing club went to sing at the Kitaku singing festival. We sang two songs! One is called "Kokoro no Hitomi". I love this song so much! I wish I could sing it everyday! We worked so hard and the audience all clapped their hands for us! We were all so happy!

The other unforgettable thing that I did was climb Takao mountain with my friend. I met my friend at the station. We first rid on the Takao Touzan railway. It is the steepest railway line in Japan, operated once every 15 minutes, with the entire ride taking 5 minutes. It was getting more and more slippery as the car went on and on. It was really a wonderful experience. We climbed for 30 minutes, and we had all kinds of delicious food on the way to the top! We had tenguyaki, dango, mushroom soup and oden! The most famous one there was the tenguyaki, but I liked the dango best. It was the best dango I have ever had!

We finally reached the summit of the mountain! It was just the time for sunset! The view was so good as we had an overview the city. We enjoyed the sunset and the maple leaves. We also saw Mt Fuji beyond the sunset! What a wonderful day!!!!!
