Hello. This is Keita from HARU.
I will report on the activity at Ohashi contemporary housing units in Ishinomaki city.
During the morning, the inhabitants and we cooked cooperately 'Hiyashi Chuka'.
'Hiyashi Chuka' is a famous Japanese dish with chilled ramen noodles and verious toppings; hams, crab sticks, thin omelette cut into strips, cucumbers, seaweeds, etc. You can place whatever you want on the noodles !
A lot of ingredients made 'Hiyashi Chuka' more delicious :-)))
'Hiyashi Chuka' is perfect for summer season !
We made 'origami' ornaments for 'Tanabata' in the afternoon.
'Origami' is a traditional Japanese art: folding a sheet of square paper into various objects.
'Tanabata', which is also called Star Festival, is a Japanese culture based on a legend of two stars, Orihime (Vegas) and Hikoboshi(Altair).
On July 7th of every year, people write their wishes on paper strips and hang them on bamboo leaves.
Everyone was making well designed works !
After finishing making them, we unified each work and hung it on the wall of the assembly hall. So wonderful :,-)
As a result of advertising this event to inhabitants living in public restoration housing in Kadonowaki area and Nozomi area as well as in Ohashi area, 19 people in total joined our event.
Thank you !
