GSFS New Year Rice Cake Making

On the first weekend of the new year, the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences hosts the annual "Rice Cake Making Festival". Over 150 people which includes faculty members, students, international students, and their families gather for this event to celebrate the start of the year.

Another purpose of this event is to introduce traditional Japanese culture to the international students studying at Kashiwa Campus, and we play many new year activities such as kite-flying, spinning top, and Hagoita games. It is a peaceful day where we get to fully enjoy the start of the new year.
