ナマステ♪みやまです。Hi there! This is Miya.

海の日の3連休、みなさんはどう過ごされましたか? How did you spend 3 days holiday?

私は家族で海⛱に行ってきました〜。(ベタですねw)I went to the sea with my family:)

さて、子どもたちは夏休みモード突入の中、夏のバナナかぞくの予定は… While school children are about to be in summer holidays, we are planning…

8月10日(水)はぼんおどり♪ Let’s dance Bon-dance on 10th Aug!




Actually, Miya loves Bon-dance. Have you heard about Bon-dance? It’s the particular dances Japanese people dance at the occasion of Obon in summer. Why don’t you try it once? Bon-dance is very easy. Once you remember some motions, all you should do is repeat dancing them!

白系。南インドのサリーです。 White one which is from South India.

サリーの着付けボランティアさんも募集します♪ Wanted Volunteers for draping Sarees




Of course Miya is also going to drape the sarees. But it would be lovely if somebody can help me, so more people can experience wearing a Saree.

This time, it is “easy wrapping” of a Saree, thus it is not authentic with proper saree blouse and petticoat. I hope volunteers would understand it. In case this event goes very well, there might be a little reward… hopefully.
