Over the last month there’s been a lot of preparation and anticipation for the annual Kannonyama thanksgiving festival, which we finally had last week! We had a great turnout of festival-goers and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. Throughout the day, there were plenty of activities and entertainment organised. There were even a couple of celebrity appearances too with Wakayama girl group Fun x Fam and Maya Ayahane stopping by to perform. At the festival, you were able to pick your own mikans in the nearby field, participate in the mikan hunt , join in the group games and watch the fireworks display. Almost all of the staff were able to stop their usual work and come join in and it was nice that everyone was together in one place. It was good fun and there was certainly a lot to be thankful for
