I'm on a rode trip with Greg and Nicole and today is bunkasai day. cultural festival day Umm, at lots of the universities, it's actually like a national holiday in Japan. I think this coming up Monday is like "culture day". It was Friday. Oh, it's Friday. Okay, so yesterday. So today They're having all the festivals at the universities which are really fun so we decided to take a trip to our old University For old times sake and we're gonna go visit the festival there But first we got to stop at the grocery store and get some like treats because its kind of like a tradition for the older students to bring like a Little present for the students that are working at the bunkasai now We're gonna get some cookies or something like that. Alright, let's find the snacks We could get them drinks, too. Yeah, but enough for everybody? Yeah, that would be hard to carry. There's some salty snacks. Yeah, I think like the bag of cookies or something was a good idea I remember one year, somebody brought like a box of donuts for my group, and everyone was so happy. Maple cookies M&m's Where are those bags of like... yeah this kind of stuff Like these ones or something? We could get them some Oreos like one of each flavor Look they have these as much of Kit Kats right and they're like 278 yeah, then they have these ones over here that are 368 so maybe there are different ones. You were saying you thought it was just a different package but.. what is Manu? Oh if they have like tea leaves in them? Oh, I think this one is new. But this must be stronger. Yeah, thats new. We could get them like take a bunch of different KitKat's What do you think? Let's do that, I guess, they can argue over which one they want. lol All right, snack done So they have these pins every year there's some for boys here and some for girls here. And you have to find your matching your pair Lucky number 217 I got 237 All right, lets go find our boyfriends. Are you going to get one, Greg? Find 217 (lol) 197 all right, let's go. Let's see who can find their match first So the basic idea of the cultural festival It's basically just like, there's lots of food, the students form little groups, and they have tables where they sell things, mostly food Some people do performances like the clubs will do performances. Lots of dance performances and stuff like that. Those would be happening probably later on today So I'll try and catch some of those. Our university is actually an international university, so there's lots of students from all over Europe. There's probably some American students here at the moment at least some North American students, but mostly Europeans, Hungarians Norwegians This was my semi, Ichiyama Semi. They're always really hardcore. They do a great job at the bunksai Our teacher is Brazilian, so they often have Brazilian themed food here So here's the main area with all the booths, it's already like 2:00 p.m. So lots of the popular booths have already sold out of all their food the festival goes on for two days though, so If they have leftover ingredients they''ll be selling stuff again tomorrow We're just going to find my homeroom teacher now to say hi. It's been a while since I've seen her Wanna be in my video. Hi! So every year we would get a room we wouldn't know which room we were gonna get it's kind of like a draw. And then we'd have to decorate it like the theme. for the year I'm pretty sure I made that, they're reusing it. That's cheating! So each homeroom will research a topic and then they'll present about it in the display here It looks like their theme was coffee this year So my teachers was just telling me that they'd like to mash this up and spread it on a banana and eat it that way That sounds good. Sharl: yeah that sounded good That's what the adults like to do, and the children just eats it, like this, like a snack Ah, that smells like peanut butter Oh my god, that smells so good! It's taste just like Reese's peanut butter cup without the chocolates They had a Canadian booth, they had poutine. What? There were never enough Canadian students when I was here, so we didn't get our own booth I was always with the Americans. I'm jealous. So each booth will post their Posters on the walls and stuff to advertise what they're selling. It's always like a big competition, you try to be the most popular booth every year Alright the festival is closing up now. Didn't find my boyfriend. Did you find your boyfriend, Nicole? No, I didn't. I still have mine. Greg, did you find your girlfriend? No? We're all going home single We're gonna go say bye to our teachers now. And then Greg wants to get some sushi before we go home. Look at the lights, it's almost Christmas Halloween's over it's Christmas now So it's a typhoon now Not actually it might as well be one We went to leave the festival and we go outside and it's crazy windy and rainy like all of a sudden So we borrowed some umbrellas from my teacher She's never going to get back. And we're going to sushi now. A bowl So we're at sushi now. So at this place They give you a little notepad and you write down your order on here. You can actually call them over and order that way, but I like writing it down It's easier. And I feel like they don't forget things. If you do it this way. Greg. What are you doing? What is that, Greg? Sriracha Where did that some from?! Greg sneaks in his own sriracha 'cause he like mixing it with the soy sauce Nice work Every time Greg comes to sushi he gets french fries. I need it Is it good? Is it good as you expected? Alight guys we're gonna enjoy our sushi, so I'm gonna say bye here. Hope you enjoy coming to the festival with us And I'll see you again soon Bye guys!
