IUJ invites you to its annual school festival “International Festival.” Enjoy international dishes prepared by IUJ students. Feast your eyes on a 3-hour stage show displaying some of the 60 cultures on our campus, including Japan.
This year again, as a special feature, 6 IUJ teams will take on the “Onigiri World Championship.” They will create an original onigiri “riceball” dish to combine Japan’s traditional food made with the wonderful Koshihikari rice of our area with the flavors or their country! The Onigiri World Campionship is sponsored by the Niigata Prefecture and Minami Uonuma city.
Meet IUJ students using English or Japanese to discover the world.
This event is wonderful for children, young adults, adults, seniors and the elderly alike! Join us!
