Today marks the conclusion of our second week at the Governor’s Japanese Academy. We began our day with extra long language classes in order to clear up space for our afternoon activities.
After lunch we began our second day of Traditional Japanese Cooking, this time featuring sushi. We were given a variety of fillings including imitation crab, smoked salmon, tuna-mayo, cucumbers, carrots, and 玉子焼き(a type of Japanese rolled scrambled egg). We were then able to choose our toppings and build our unique sushi creations. We had a lot of fun picking our ingredients and rolling our sushi using bamboo mats. The end product was amazing and we all ate enough to hold us off through dinner.
We are looking forward to 運動会(undoukai - sports festival) which takes place tomorrow, and also to sharing our newly acquired sushi knowledge with our friends and family!
