I have been very entertained by the variety of activities avaliable here at ISAK. Every Monday and Thursday, there are excursions to the onsen and super market. Tomorrow is my birthday and I am very happy because my friends have decided to celebrate by bringing me somewhere. Tomorrow at around 4 we will be going to a town called Saku in order to attend a festival. This festival is a hot air balloon festival, something I am very excited to go see. I know that parades and festivals are very popular in Japan, and I have always wanted to go to one myself. I look forward to taking many photos there and eating the delicious food that they sell at the stands!
