Japanese club allows students to immerse themselves in Japanese culture.

At the first meeting of the year, students decided what activities the club will do this year. They will travel to a Japanese garden in Mishawaka and watch Japanese movies or TV show dramas that can help members understand the culture, among many other activities. Club members who are not in a Japanese class will have the opportunity to learn to speak and write some sentences in Japanese.

At the next meeting, the club will be having a cosplay party, where members will dress up as their favorite anime characters. The club usually meets in room 103, but will have the cosplay party in the staff dining room. Anyone coming to the party should bring food for about 25 people.

Dues are $10, and must be turned in by October 26th, the same day as the cosplay party. If you have any questions, please email sponsor Mrs. Wolfgang at bwolfgang@phm.k12.in.us.
