Momiji-Gari at Oku-Tama on the November 18!

Momiji-Gari at Oku-Tama on the November 18!

2012 Events
Autumn is in the air once again, in the shortening of the days, the chilling of the air, and the reddening of the leaves. It is on that note that we would like to announce this year's momiji-gari, or autumn leaf viewing-hike. Momiji-gari is always a good time to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and head for the quiet of the rural countryside, and it is with that in mind that we have chosen Oku-Tama, in the outskirts of Tokyo, as this year's momiji-gari spot, in the hope that it'll allow participants, especially those who are still new to Japan, to see a different side to Tokyo. We will also be having dinner together after the hike - although optional, it is definitely a good…

Amidst the busy life of Tokyo and 期末テスト期間 ( Final Exam Period), we were fortunate to be blessed with good weather as we went down on a Sunday to Hollywood University in Roppongi. It was indeed an unforgettable day of fun and sweat for the SSAJ Exco Committee and Singaporeans alike as they worked hard to set up our very own Singapore booth, with a spread of mouthwatering local dishes of Chicken Rice, Claypot Rice and last but not least, Laksa. Our very own Singapore Booth & Menu for the day Chicken Rice Laksa by Prima Claypot Rice Prima products displayed at our booth.

SSAJ Volunteer Trip to Ootsuchi

SSAJ Volunteer Trip to Ootsuchi

2012 Events
It has been one year and a half since the earthquake, and still a lot of work to be done. We have heard that there are many students that wanted to participate in volunteer activities, but did not know how to go about doing so, or worried about their Japanese speaking abilities. With a few of the SSAJ members are familiar with the volunteer scene at Tohoku, we put our organizational skills to good use and successfully organised an SSAJ Volunteer Trip to Ootsuchi, Iwate Prefecture, from 1 June to 4 June 2012, and 44 participants (both Singaporeans and international friends) took the weekend to clean up Kiri Kiri Beach. Below are the details of how it went! 1 June, Friday: Set off in night bus Few of us glamorously taking…

2012 Events
Hanami2012 was planned to be held on a Saturday, and we were very excited to receive responses for a potentially BIGGEST Hanami event that we have ever organised! ...However, the weather kami-sama didn't cooperate with us and as the days go by, the trusty Japan weather forecast predicted that it will rain on the Saturday... xP Like they  always say "the show must go on!" Cherry blossom viewing is a very special seasonal event and the time where we can organize a gathering for everyone without burning a hole in participants' pockets, and so we shifted the event to Sunday, 15th April 2012. Despite the last minute changes to the date of the event, we are very pleasantly surprised to still see a large response for the event and we…

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! (: REUNITE@Tokyo, a Chinese New Year reunion lunch was held on 22January2012, Sunday, and we would like to say a big THANK YOU to all who joined us for the lunch, Singaporeans and international friends alike, and added to the great company and festive atmosphere we have missed out at home! Many gathered in the room the Chinese restaurant specially reserved for us. It was a little bit cramp but that made the reunion lunch more cosy huh! :P Once everyone was seated, we started the course off with a Singapore "yam-seng!!" A generous lady from SAiJ gave out 4 packets of Ang Pow (with SG dollars) to 4 brave individuals who would go up to her and say some Chinese New Year idioms! And…
