At our Fukuoka Japanese school, students learned about new year customs.
Then they played games such as 福笑い (Fukuwarai), where a blindfolded person tries to make a face from parts, like a much harder pin the tail on the donkey.
Next was traditional Japanese new year food, お節料理 (osech ryouri).
Finally, they capped off the day with a visit to a nearby shrine.
It was a busy, but educational day!
