On Friday 23 April, we had Izakaya (Japanese pub) party in Shinjuku with 22 students and 3 staffs. It was 3 hours of drinking, eating and singing. Everyone was a bit shy about karaoke in the beginning, but it didn’t take long for them to jump on the microphone. We sang so loud people could hear us from outside the pub.
There were also other big parties held in the same Izakaya by university students. It was an excellent opportunity for the KAI students to meet and socialize with the locals.
