This time, the AIU provided a bus so that students could go to the oppening concert of the National Sports Competition, wich is being now held in Akita (in fact just across the road from AIU). It was in this Auditorium close do the train station, a very nice place for wich I have no pictures. There were 2 acts. First, a Gospel Choir (japanese), and then, a singer called Joelle (also japanese from Akita, but american father). Before the actual concert the performers went on stage for some sort of interview with the hostess of the show, who was dressed with some traditional Akita peasent suit. Well, it must have been at least a little bit funny, cause some people were laughing, but I couldn't fully understand what was going on.
Well, the great news around is: the Japanese Crown Prince is coming for a visit at AIU!!!! Is there any chance I can take a picture?!
