Sweets Making Workshop

Students went on a field trip to the wagashi (traditional Japanese sweets) shop Oimatsu to attend a sweets making workshop!

They learned how to knead the dough made from sweet beans into traditional flower shapes, and even made a few original designs!

Afterwards, everyone ate their creations with matcha green tea. Yum!

Disaster Drill

Today, we had a disaster drill to practice what to do in the event of an emergency on campus.

In an earthquake, it’s important to hide under a sturdy table to protect your head and body from falling objects.

Once the shaking has stopped, it’s time to head to the designated meeting place. For Doshisha and AKP, the meeting place is the Kyoto Imperial Palace grounds, just across the street from campus. Everyone, remember to come here in an emergency situation!

Meeting with Conversation Partners

We’re continuing the Conversation Partner program this semester! Our new spring students met their partners today and exchanged contact information.

We hope you all have fun practicing Japanese with your partners!
