Japanese class

Rain storm at Show Kinen Park

The same day we went to the Tachikawa Bosaikan we also visited the Showa Kinen Park with our Japanese class. This is a huge and impressive park which has many natural areas (from swamp to bonsai) and recreational areas (including water playground & mini golf).

Together as a group we got to go on the mini "train" transport (which Caleb didn't want to get off) and have traditional Japanese green tea/sweets, all compliments of the Japanese Class funding. The timing was impeccable as we watched a sudden torrential downpour over this lake from the air-conditioned comfort of the tearooms. This cooled the humid 33 degrees a little, with steamed vapourising from the hot ground.
