Thank you! *Kiryu Board Game Night* 桐生ボードゲームナイト

On Friday, November 10th, JOMO JET held another successful board game night at the Kiryu City Performing Arts Center in Kiryu. The event gathered many participants from around the world and of all age groups, and for one night, elementary school, international, and senior participants went head to head over English board games. We even got to see several arm wrestling competitions– complementary of English Jenga!

11/10(金)に桐生市市民文化会館で JOMO JET のボードゲームナイトが開催しました。参加者は小学生から大人、そしてさらに色んな国からの人も一緒に仲良く、楽しく英語のゲームを遊べました。英語ジェンガでも腕相撲の罰ゲームで盛り上がりました。お疲れ様です!

(Below) Board Game: Hedbanz (ヘッドバンズ)


There were 7 games: English Jenga, Incan Gold, Mahe, Pictureka, Ghost Blitz, Toddles Bobbles, and Hedbanz.

Thank you to everyone that came out to this event. I personally had fantastic conversations about travel destinations around the world over snacks and tea and got a little too excited watching participants sing and dance at the Jenga table.

We’ll see you all at the next Board Game Night!

全部で7つのゲームが並んであり、参加者は好きなゲームを三つ選べます。もちろんゲームは英語で遊びます。それにしても楽しく英語を使ってくれた参加者を見てすごく感動しました。小学生の子供達も色んな新しい英語の単語を学んで、最後も”see you~”でお別れしました。私も休み時間に旅行のおすすめ情報をたくさん聞かせてもらいました。これからも英語を日常にたくさん使ってください〜来てくれてありがとうございました!



Foster Home Visit (10/14/2017) – 児童養護施設訪問

For Halloween, JOMO JET members dressed up in costumes and visited a foster home in Shibukawa.
ハロウィンにJOMO JETメンバーが仮装をし、渋川市にある児童養護施設を訪問しました。
We enjoyed many Halloween activities together. We tossed a ball of yarn to each other as we said our names, making a giant spider web together. The children decorated paper bags so they had a candy bag for the day.

The children then moved from one game station to another in groups to play three games and get candy. They made Halloween masks, played a carnival game where they tossed a ball into the mouth of a jack-o- lantern, and had a mummy race by wrapping their partner with toilet paper.

At the end, all students went apple bobbing. The apples were quite big for their little mouths, but everyone was able to fish an apple out of the water! Even a staff member participated, grabbing their apple with their mouth right away! We hope the children had a fun time celebrating Halloween with us, and we hope to see them again in the near future!

Thank you! *Takasaki Board Game Night* 高崎ボードゲームナイト

On Friday, July 7th, JOMO JET held Takasaki Board Game Night at Spectrum.

JOMO JETは7月7日(金)にSpectrumで高崎ボードゲームナイトを開催しました。



This time, we had eight different games. Many people tried new games for the first time, but there was also the well-known Jomo Karuta. Of course, it was the English version!




Also, we introduced a new English-only sticker system. Participants who wanted to be spoken to in only English could put a sticker on their name tag. For many people, it was a fun challenge and way to practice more English!




Sadly, it is once again the time of year to say goodbye to many JOMO JET members. We wished Tabitha, Crystal, and Brandon the best of luck. We were able to have a fantastic last event with them.

残念ながら、またJOMO JETのメンバーの中で、たくさんのメンバーとお別れの時期になってしまいました。タビサ、クリスタル、ブランドンの、今後ますますの活躍を期待しています。彼らとの最後のイベントは最高でした。



Thank you so much for always making Takasaki Board Game night such a success! We hope to see you at our next Board Game Night.
