On Friday, February 2, the Japanese Department held a Karaoke Night. The event was attended by approximately 170 current JAPN students along with students from Ritsumeikan University and instructors. There were 20 performances in Japanese by talented students, including some duets, a solo performance by a Ritsumeikan student, and a special group song and dance of the 2020 Gorin Ondo, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics song and dance. The volunteer Masters of Ceremonies were two 2nd-year JAPN students, who kept the energy high and the event moving smoothly. During the intermission, everyone enjoyed sushi and snacks, and at the end the very enthusiastic audience voted for their favourite performers. We hope to see you at the next event!
