Lots of photos from our Umi No Hi (Marine Day) free beach barbecue in our photo gallery here. We had a great time! It could have been a little sunnier, but some people still managed to get sunburned (your correspondent included). The food was good, the beach was fun, and the company was great! This time, 150 people attended – about half Genki Japanese school students, and half Japanese people, so there were lots of opportunities for language exchange. The next beach barbecue will be in a couple of weeks – summer’s nowhere near over yet!
