... before coming to Japan, and not only is it a thing but it's a popular thing! Kids go mental for it and it's usually played in every school. As I was leaving my vice principle said he was getting the same bus as me as he was going to Nakajima Koen (where I live) for a vice principle meeting. Quality bloke.

Then I jumped a few hurdles before I got scared my trousers would rip and expose my Crown Jewels so I soon stopped..... and went into the high jump.

Pamela also spread some Christmas cheer and made each of us a beaded key chain and gave us a candy cane and lollipop. I still had some candy canes so I shared those and then gave the chiropractor some in the afternoon. The chiropractor asked if it was a decoration, which I'm sure ...

Something I forgot to mention last time is that the students wear uniforms. The uniforms are pretty much what you'd expect, girls wear plaid skirts and boys wear polo shirts and matching pants. The interesting thing is that they all wear the same pair of sneakers. These of course are indoor shoes since you have to take your outdoor shoes off to enter the building.
We'll see what else I notice next time I go.
