After dinner on day 9, the academy students were given the opportunity to create their version of signature stamps, traditionally called hanko. They carved one hanko with their signature, and one with a design that they entered into a competition. Day 10 started with the typical language classes. After lunch, the students attended a lecture given by one of their RAs, Kei Sempai. The presentation focused on the art of kabuki theater, a traditional type of Japanese play that features men in all roles. For dinner, the students gave up eating at the school's dining hall in order to cook yakisoba, a type of stir fry noodle eaten in Japan. Students then continued work on oshibai props and costumes before ending the day.
