A Well-Deserved Break – Golden Week at Wakoku

A Well-Deserved Break – Golden Week at Wakoku

 

     This week was a little different for Wakoku students and teachers. Due to the generous number of public holidays in Japan, everyone was able to enjoy staying home on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The students have been working very hard since the beginning of the semester and so some time at home to focus on hobbies, spend time with family or catch up on sleep was greatly appreciated. Friday morning it was back to work for everyone but with one question being repeated over and over in the hallways and classrooms: “What did you do for Golden Week?” For me, I visited the annual Bonsai Festival in Omiya Bonsai Village. Golden Week is the perfect opportunity to learn about Japan and Japanese culture for us ALTs.
