Valentine’s Day Party (SAWAKAI) By the International Student Support Desk

Jan 18, 2024
  • イベント

We will have a Valentine’s Day party in January.
In Japan, it is common for women to give gifts to men on Valentine’s Day.
The most popular gift is chocolates.
Some women prepare homemade chocolates.
But this event is NOT targeting only women.
Why don’t we make chocolates and celebrate the Japanese-style Valentine’s Day with us?
You must have a lot of final reports and exams, but it is time to rest!
Let’s enjoy making and eating sweet chocolates together!
