Last Saturday I took part in an Undoukai, which is a Japanese sports day event. It was organized by ISDAK (the International Students Dormitory Association of Kodaira) who usually put on events, like the Undokai, to bring everyone who lives on the campus together.
We started the day at 10am and were split into teams of 7, and there were 6 teams in total. I was elected as the Team Leader for Team A and we were given orange straps to wear. I chose to wear mine the traditional Japanese sporty way by tying it across my forehead!
Throughout the day we took part in various sports and activities, which were so much fun! It was a great way to bond with new people from other buildings in this dormitory. If you want to see some of the sports/activities we did, ISDAK uploaded a video showing us the rules of the games on YouTube.
Overall, my team came fourth which wasn’t too bad! Well done Team A! I’m looking forward to the next Undoukai which will hopefully be next Spring.
