Sports Day 2019

The day began with a traditional Japanese morning exercise called "Rajio Taisou" (ラジオ体操) everyone joined in - including the spectators.
This was followed by a few relay races and then the highlight of the event - The children vs elderly ball toss, this 100 year old tradition unites the generations and is just good old fashioned fun for all involved.

This year the rain meant the second half of the event was cancelled. Being a small island, with much of it congregated in one area, you can probably imagine the chaos that ensued as people tried to avoid the rain.
We were all separated into different cars, and headed to the Karaoke bar to share our bento lunch on a few tables pushed together, over funny stories about our journeys home.
The official afterparty was held a few days later and involved delicious food and playing with the children so their parents could enjoy their time drinking and chatting.
