This is kinda a catch all post for some of the things we did January through March that aren’t really big enough to have their own post (or I don’t have enough pictures for a separate post!) So this is going to kinda jump around a bit.
The first is Fujioka’s snow day. These aren’t too common, and this was a big one! Kita’s school grounds looked really nice in the snow… and I was happy I didn’t have to bike to school in the snow!
After a time it looks like this, all stuck together, and you can eat it plain, wrap red bean paste in it, or dip it in sauces. Since it is homemade it doesn’t last very long, and is really filling being made of rice, but it is always fun to make!
After that was Shinmachi’s Hina Matsuri (doll festival) events. The special building was opened to house several donated collections of the Hina Matsuri dolls, and you could walk around the area to several stores who were participating for special deals and stuff.
