Ski Trip FundraiserPosted: February 20, 2012
In order to raise funds for our Scholarship fund we are running a charity Ski trip in Shizukuishi. But first we will be going to Mishuku Nakagawa, participating in a cultural activity, and then feasting on local tradition foods called “Jukko dishes” while washing it down with doburoku (home made sake). The owner of Mishuku Nakagawa, Mr. Nakagawa, is one of the few licensed producers of doburoku in all of Japan. His doburoku is called “Ichi no Shizuku” （一の雫）. The schedule is outlined below:
