Thank you! * Maebashi Board Game Night * 前橋ボードゲームナイト

We had our Maebashi Board Game Night on Friday September 20th, at Kencho in Maebashi. We had a lot of fun, thanks to all our volunteers and participants!


We played seven games: Apples to Apples, Ghostblitz, Headbanz, Mahe, Pictureka, Splash, and Super Rhino! Everyone played three rounds of games. We really enjoyed ourselves!


Super Rhino is a lot of fun, but… Be careful!!

キャプテン・リノは気持ちと共に天にも昇りますが… 気をつけないと!

It was a lot of fun to talk with everyone! We hope to see you at our next event!

Thank You! * Eigo de Cooking * 英語でクッキング

On Saturday, February 2, JOMO JET once again 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 English conversation!
2月 2日(土)に、前橋市国際交流協会と共催の「英語でクッキング」を実施しました。たくさんのご参加、ありがとうございました! 

The goal of this event was to cook a delicious meal while communicating in English. We split into 6 groups and cooked together by following the instructions of our JOMO JET cooking leaders, Natsuko and Bonnie. They showed us each step carefully and with simple English instructions.
このイベントの目標は、英語コミュニケーションを通して美味しい料理をつくることでした。6つのグループで、JOMO JETのクッキングリーダーのナツコとボニーの指示に従って、一緒に料理しました。シンプルな英語を使って、一ステップずつ丁寧に教えてくれました。

This year’s theme was an American menu: chicken pot pie, a spring salad with strawberries and walnuts, and apple crumble for dessert. Chicken pot pie is a hearty dish in America, and is common especially in the winter.


You can also use leftover chicken or vegetables to make chicken pot pie. We hope our participants will try making the dishes again at home someday!

Once again, thanks to everyone for joining this cooking event and a big thank you to MIA for their help in planning and running this event. We had a great time cooking with you all!

来てくれた皆さん、ありがとうございました! Thank you to everyone who came!

In May, we had our Nakanojo Board Game Day! Not only did we have many participants, but many ALTs from all around Gunma came and volunteered!  It was loads of fun!

The 7 games that we played were Dobble, Dixit Odyssey, Pass the Pigs, We Will Rock You, English Jenga, Splash! and Hedbanz. Participants picked 3 games they wanted to play and rotated every few minutes.

This was our second time having an event in Nakanojo. We hope to have another fun event there soon! As always, we look forward to seeing you all again in the future!

Thank You! * Paint Night * ペイントナイト

JOMO JET held the first Paint Night on Friday, June 22 at Maebashi Chuo Kominkan. The event was inspired by painting parties that have gained popularity in North America, where people gather to relax, paint, share food and drink, and socialize.
JOMO JET622日に前橋中央公民館で初めてのペイントナイトイベントを開催しました。北米では近年、ペインティングをしながら交流を楽しめる「ペインティングパーティー」が人気になってきました。これをきっかけとして、「ペイントナイト」を企画しました。


Our instructor was Jessica, an art major and former Gunma ALT. She came all the way from Saitama for us. Jessica demonstrated acrylic painting and explained everything step-by-step in simple English.


We referred to photos of Oze and sketched the basic parts of our paintings in pencil before applying paint. There was also bossa nova playing in the background that helped set the mood.



Halfway through painting, everyone took a well-deserved break. We enjoyed snacks and chatting with one another.



The great thing about Paint Night is that anyone can join and have fun making art. Many people experienced how fun painting can be, and were happily surprised by what they could produce.


We all painted the same Oze landscape, but everyone’s own unique styles showed through. It was fun to admire each other’s work.

Thank you for making our first Paint Night a success! We hope to see you again next time.
