On Saturday, November 24, the 25th annual International Friendship Festival was held in Kumamoto City.
Several JETs participated in the festival, showcasing taiko skills, participating in a kimono fashion show, and even volunteering in a face-painting booth alongside other Japanese high-school students. Former Kumamoto JET Edwin Huits held the microphone as master of ceremonies alongside Ms Sakai of the Kumamoto International Association.
If you are a Kumamoto JET and interested in doing a performance or hosting an exchange booth next year, please let the PAs know!
Here are a few photos from the event!
