I had two purposes on my trip to Vancouver. One was to have a look at several places for our school's study trip next year and the other was to work as a volunteer of Nikkei Matsuri.

Today, I would like to write about Nikkei Matsuri. It is a big festival held in Nikkei centre in Vancouver.

A matsuri (festival) has long been part of the cultural landscape of the Japanese community, not only in Japan but in many cities across North America. In 2013, First Nikkei Matsuri was held at the Nikkei Centre.  Since then, about 11,000 people enjoy this family friendly festival. We introduce Japanese culture through food, music, entertainment, Japanese kids games and more. (cited from the website of Nikkei Matsuri)

My friend from college who lives in Vancouver has been working for the festival. That is why I worked as a volunteer there.

I was in charge of super ball section. A lot of people, not only Japanese but also people from all over the world came to play there. The volunteers there were also from various countries. I became a friend with a man from Venezuela. Many years have passed since I finished studying Spanish, but I was able to communicate with the Venezuelan man in Spanish.

The festival was very exciting. Many people were able to understand what Masuri was. I thought that Japanese culture was great!
