SSAJ recently held its Christmas gathering near JR Otsuka station! 2022 has been quite the year for many of us in Japan, and what better way to celebrate the end of an eventful year with another hearty potluck and birthday celebrations for our members born in Nov-Dec! One of the highlights of the event was a mystery Secret Santa gift exchange where participating members would bring gifts and receive one in return. In Japan, Christmas tends to be celebrated by couples and especially for those of us spending Christmas away from friends and family for the first time, meeting up with fellow Singaporeans over the festive period was a small reminder of home.
2022 has been an eventful year for SSAJ too, and we are happy to see so many members turning up for our events. We endeavour to continue to serve Singapore Students in Japan to our utmost in 2023! To all members, Merry Christmas and we hope you have an enjoyable winter holidays!
