Coto Japanese Academy’s Beer Garden Party! + Practice Japanese!
How have you been spending the hot summer in Japan?
At Coto Japanese Academy, continuing from last year, we powerfully beat back the summer heat with a beer garden!
This year’s beer garden was held at the ultra popular Nihonbashi Mitsukoshi department store rooftop in Tokyo.
Taking in the cool evening summer breeze, classmates and teachers and scholars who don’t normally have the chance to get together all enjoyed the opportunity to mingle with a beer in one hand.
During the middle stages we held a quiz game for the regular beer garden customers to practice Japanese, and enjoyed Japanese language communication.
Here are the questions we asked to locals! Do you remember the answers??
What is the name of the year that has 366 days?
When was the last Tokyo Olympics held?
What is the name of current Tokyo governor? please answer with the full name.
Konochikaku de oishii izakaya o oshiete kudasai.
