RICE HARVEST FESTIVAL

暖かい人々と共に賑やかに収穫祭を行いました。

80日ボランティアとヒロさんは、黒木小学校の学習発表会(黒木のじまんについて発表、人形浄瑠璃の披露など)に招待されました。
その後は四季菜館で収穫祭の事前準備をスタッフや会員さんらと行いないました。お祭り当日は多くの方が参加してくれて、とても賑やかでした。また、この日はマラソン大会も行われていまして、お祭りの合間に応援に行きました。食事は鴨の丸焼き、おでん、ぜんざい、お酒なども飲ませていただきました。
子ども、大人、高齢者、外国人、地元の人、障がい者、様々な人が交流できたイベントでした。イベント終了後は、後片付けをして、えがおの森に帰りました。
休みの日は焼き芋を行いました。

Warm people, intense work and overwhelmed feelings, this was the atmosphere experienced during Kurogi Harvest Festival.

Sansonjuku volunteers and Hiro San left Egao no Mori for two days. Directly, we assisted to Kurogi School, where we watched an amazing children class performances as playing piano, daiko or puppets.

After we went to Shikizaikan, where we met Sansonjuku staff and supporters. With passion and enthusiasm for tomorrows' Rice Harvest Festival event, all together organized and got ready for the celebration.
The big day started with nervous, impatient and excitement. While arranging the last aspects of the event, the Marathon runners were passing by and the Rice Harvest Festival assistants were arriving and coming in Shikizaikan. Once everything was ready we raised our glasses and shouted, KAMPAI! Everyone was using the dishes made of bamboo, each one contains a huge variety of food, like oden, zensai and duck meat.
Children, elderly people, Asians, Europeans, local people, farmers, handicap people, university students, families and singles, all together shared food, drinks, work and conversations. Finally, as usual, the most adventurers could participate the Sawing Wood Competition.
After cleaning up Shikisaikan and saying goodbye, we came back to Egao no Mori with Komori San family.

Today the volunteers of Sansonjuku had day off and we cheer up cooking Japanese style Satsumaimo, using the fallen leaves of the trees.

Thank all the people for joining the event and have a nice week.
