In Autumn, many schools hold the Athletic Festival on holiday. Students had been looking forward it and drilling every day. The purpose to hold the Athletic festival is for a fun, of course, but essentially, the Japanese schools try to teach students the discipline and the importance to unite. Is it difficult to make the modern students believe in or have a respect for ‘the solidarity’, because they are cynical than old days? I don’t think so. They ran, threw, jumped and shouted with their all might. A few of them were weeping with regret. I’m so simple that I couldn’t help but getting my eyes watery at each touching scenes. I believe that the Athletic Festival is not only for students but also for PARENTS! Every moms and daddies was so crazy while their kids were playing games! ME, TOO!
The interclass relay
Have you ever played Kibasen/a mock cavalry battle? I love this game so much!! I think almost all the Japanese students play this game in their school days.
These movies below are not from my video but I picked them up from Youtube. You can see how exciting they are!!
