Sunshine Newsletter for February 2022

It has been over one month since the QLD border opened. I feel we get used to this condition now.

Jetstar was going to resume international flights from Cairns to Japan in the middle of February; however, they postponed into the end of March so far. Also, Japan hasn’t accepted overseas tourists yet. We still need to wait for more until we can visit Japan without any stress. QLD schools will finally start. Hopefully, many things will get back to normal soon.


Workshop & Kōryū-kai (gathering) :

Under some restrictions in Cairns, no workshop and Kōryū-kai will be held this month.

If you have any ideas/requests about future workshops, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.



Oshaberi Club:

Same as a workshop, no oshaberi clubthis month either.

If you have any topics/requests about future oshaberi club activities, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Oshaberi club (where you can practice your Japanese conversational skills with other participants who are interested in a certain topic) comprising two groups, one being elementary to pre-intermediate and the other being intermediate or higher.
