Today we had a winter sports day at school. NO CLASSES! Judo! Kendo! Traditional dancing! It was my first time watching Kendo, and I was blown away. My students were like young Jedis. Kendo is a more badass version of Star Wars lightsaber battles.
I was exhausted from just watching it all day. I came home and had my own little TGIF party for one: heated up some leftover macaroni and cheese, cracked open a Sapporo, and caught up with the newest Vampire Diaries episode online.
A group of us are going skiing in Hakuba this weekend, so I’m off to do some last-minute packing. I’m excited to check out the Japanese ski scene. I hear neon is the color du jour. Will report back!
