At the end of Day 2, students gathered for their nightly meeting and recorded the day's thoughts in provided journals. At the start of Day 3, students participated in 'rajio taiso,' a series of Japanese stretches that they perform each morning. After breakfast, the students split into three individual classes. The beginner classes played a game that helped with hiragana (one of the Japanese alphabets) memorization while the advanced class began work on the scripts for the plays that will be performed by students on July 13th from 3:30 to 6:30 pm. After lunch, students had another hour of class before attending a lecture on yokai, the supernatural creatures of Japanese folklore. During this lecture, students gathered in their hans to conceptualize and illustrate an imaginary yokai based on strange occurrences at the academy. Later, students were given the opportunity to go to the gym, or take time to study and reflect on what they learned.
