I've posted about 140 pictures from the two-day Culture festival (bunka sai) that took place at Hamayama Jr High on November 17th and 18th.

Day Two was filled with singing and speeches. The traditional class comepetition took place on Sunday, with each of the 12 homeroom classes singing one song together on stage in front of the rest of the school. They were judged on piano playing, conducting and overall performance.

I took lots of pics of the kids hanging out in the gym between songs and of the winning class, pictured above.

We also enjoyed a taiko drumming performance put on by local high school students from nearby Norin HS.
