Sunshine Newsletter for October 2021

Summer is just around the corner. We still don’t know how our lives will be changing; however, I hope all Sunshine members enjoy their moment each day.

Japan will have autumn coming soon, and I have seen a lot of autumn foods on the internet. I really miss various seasonal stuff.



Workshop & Kōryū-kai (gathering) :

No workshop and Kōryū-kai this month.

We will have one more workshop for this year. If you have any idea about the Japanese cultural experience/trial/study, please don’t hesitate to let me know.


Oshaberi Club:

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. Please feel free to jump in and enjoy this fun challenge.

***GROUP 1: Intermediate or higher*** We will practise the situation conversation, which is the same as last month. You will see a photo. The photo shows where you will pretend you are, such as you are walking with friends there. Then you will chat in that situation. The scenery will make it easy for the conversation. Enjoy chatting!

Time: 1:00 pm, Saturday, 30th October

***GROUP 2: Elementary to pre-intermediate*** Don’t hesitate, and just give a go! Let’s talk about your most previous trip to Japan, what you like, what you didn’t like, tell us what was interesting, fun, cool or new that you discovered. Bring some photos, prints, gift (Omiyage), trinket, anything that you brought back from your travels and let’s chat about it this Oshaberi club. Please come and join us.

Time: 3:00 pm, Saturday, 30th October

For both groups, please book your attendance so that I can organise the groups. Try to book at the earliest time to reserve your spot as you don’t want to miss out.

Fee: $30

News corner:

Interesting article: Ancient DNA rewrites Japanese history

Are you interested in DNA and/or human being history? Are you simply interested in Japanese people? It would be good to have a look at this article. Some Japanese terminology took me back to my school days, in my history class.
