Wanko Soba

SICE is winding down. The Morioka Board of Education gave us a wanko soba party to celebrate the success of the students’ internships as assistant language teachers in the middle schools. Wanko soba is a traditional party where each person gets tiny bowls of noodles, one right after the other until the person eating puts a lid on the bowl. It is a kind of competition to see how many you can eat. Of the SICE students Veronica won by finishing 105 bowls of noodles. Tyler, former SICE student and now an ALT, was the grand winner of all participants, with 20 or more above Veronica’s score. Not quite sure.

Enjoy the photos!
