Sunshine Newsletter for July 2022


I didn’t imagine I would go to Japan so soon. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I am going to Japan for my family time. It has been a long time since my last visit, and it is the longest time I have had ever without seeing my family. I feel our lifestyle has completely changed. I need to make much of every moment with my loved people.

なんと私(わたくし)、日本(にほん)に行(い)きます!いいことか悪(わる)いことか、日本(にほん)に行(い)って家族(かぞく)と過(す)ごします。家族(かぞく)に会(あ)うのはすごく久(ひさ)しぶりです。こんなに家族(かぞく)に会(あ)わなかったことはありません。いろいろなことがすっかり変(か)わってしまいましたね。大切(たいせつ)な人(ひと)と過(す)ごす時間(じかん)を大切(たいせつ)にしなければならないなと強(つよ)く感(かん)じています。





Workshop & Kōryū-kai (gathering) :

I am so sorry I could not prepare for this; therefore, 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.



本当(ほんとう)にすみません。今月(こんげつ)のワークショップ&交流会(こうりゅうかい)は、ありません。

今後(こんご)どんなワークショップがしたいですか。意見(いけん)やリクエストを聞(き)かせてください。待(ま)っています!




Oshaberi Club:

I am so sorry, Oshaberi club for July is also cancelled. We will resume it when I come back from Japan.

*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. If you are interested in joining for the future activity, please let me know.

すみません、私(わたし)が日本(にほん)から帰(かえ)るまでおしゃべりクラブはお休(やす)みします。

​ Cairns Japan Bon dance festival 2022

Cairns Japan Bon dance festival in Esplanade will be held on 13th August (Sat), 2022! It seems like we have retrieved our lives back to normal like one before the COVID-19. As my memory is correct, we usually had this festival in September; however, bon dance festivals in Japan are held in the middle of August. Now we will have one at the same time as Japanese people do in Japan this year. That's great. Get this schedule in your journal now!


They has just started announcing this festival and inviting food stall tenants/sponsors; therefore, we should look forward to finding what stalls they will have this year.
