On Friday, March 17th, we had a St. Patrick’s Day themed Numata Board Game Night. Participants who wore green to our event received a few of one of Japan’s most famous green snacks, Matcha Kit Kats.

3月17日(金)に、沼田市で聖パトリックの祝日のテーマのボードゲームナイトを開催しました。緑色の服を着て来た参加者が日本の有名な緑色の抹茶味のKit Katをもらいました。

This time around, we had 4 games, including a brand new game, Pass the Pigs. Many participants said they enjoyed our new game because it was easy to understand and fun.

今回は4つのゲームがあって、1つはPass the Pigsという新しいゲームでした。何人かの参加者がPass the Pigsのやり方がわかりやすくて、楽しかったと言いていました。

残念でしたが、このイベントは一人のJOMO JETのメンバー、Caro、の最後のイベントでした。Caroは4月にオーストラリアに引っ越します!これからCaroがいないと寂しいですが、いままで色々ありがとうございました!

Eigo De Cooking(2/18) 英語 でクッキング

On Saturday, February 18th, JOMO JET held our collaborative cooking event in English with the Maebashi International Association (MIA). Thanks to the many people who came to enjoy delicious food and speaking English together!

2月18日(土)にJOMO JETは前橋市国際交流協会と共催で「英語でクッキング」を実施しました。たくさんの方にご参加いただいて、皆様のおかげでとても楽しいイベントになりました!

The participants had the opportunity to challenge themselves with cooking a delicious French meal while practicing English conversation with the JOMO JET members. After we formed groups of 5 people, every group prepared a tasty menu following Kristin (JOMO JET)’s  instructions.

JOMO JETのメンバーと英語で会話しながら、参加者の皆様は美味しいフランス料理に挑戦しました。5人のグループに分かれて、料理が上手なクリスティン先生(JOMO JET)の指示に従いながら、とても美味しいメニューを無事に作れました。


First, we made a delicious French Onion soup. Then, we made the traditional French dish, Chicken Cordon Bleu, but we made a special Dijon Cream Sauce to go with it. We also had French bread, which is an important part of any French meal.




We were able to enjoy our lunch together in our groups and talk in English with each other. Finally, we finished the meal with some chocolate lava cake. It was a great time!



Thanks to everyone for joining this cooking event and thanks to MIA for the kind cooperation to make it happen! Let’s try to challenge ourselves with cooking again in the future!



We hope to see you all at our next event, Numata Board Game Night (Friday, March 17)!
