Wahaha Students Turned Manga Artists!

Ever want to try drawing your own manga? Last Friday (August 4) Wahaha students and teachers had the fantastic opportunity to experience two forms of art in one special event – manga and digital art! First, we learned about manga in Fukuoka and even got to try our hand at drawing manga ourselves! Secondly, we got to see local digital artists’ work in action in their “We can play! Digital Art Exhibition”!

Ohori Kouen Fireworks Show!

8月といえば、やっぱり花火大会ですね!Summer, and August in particular, is fireworks season in Japan, and Fukuoka is no exception with plenty of fireworks shows (花火大会, or hanabi taikai) to enjoy. Last Tuesday (August 1) Wahaha students and teachers came together to enjoy the fireworks show at the beautiful Ohori Kouen. A traditional cultural event in Japan, you can enjoy not only the fireworks themselves but the many people dressed in beautiful yukata (casual summer kimono) as well! Try to catch a fireworks show while you’re here before the summer is over!
