Buzzing Bustling !

Hello! I’m Yuki, a Nijiiro staff member. Today we held our session in Koyocho Community Center.

Though it was already afternoon, a boy dashed into the room, loudly saying “good morning!”, and started to play with clay as usual!


A tomboy girl was playing ping pong lively on an impromptu long table without caring coldness at all. The children in Koyocho seem to be cheerful as always.


Seeing the hall, some girls were playing with a long-rope, peacefully skipping. But next to them, Mura-san and some boys were playing an intense ping pong match. Like the children in the provisional housing in the residential district of Koyocho yesterday, table tennis seems to be really popular here too!


However, a girl who picked up a racket first said she would join a tennis club when she enters the middle school, not table tennis…Hahaha…


At the end of our session, Natsukichi read some picture books to the children. Although sometimes distracted by some older girls, others were so engaged in the story of Twelve horary signs. I could see how much children love picture books!!


With many younger and older children all together, today’s session became more bustling than usual.

Today’s staff members were five of us; On-chan master, Mura-san, Yama-chan, Natsukichi and Yuki. Thank you very much!
