School Sports Festival

At the elementary, jr. high, and high school level there is an annual Spring event known as the “taiikusai,” translated as the School Sports Festival. This event usually takes place in the end of May at most schools across Japan and consists of a range of challenging sports competitions. Many common events such as the tug-of-war and relay races are featured, but what makes this day fun are the unique thought-up games masterminded by the P.E. teachers. At my JHS, a championship trophy was awarded to the best class from each grade. Because many of the events require the involvement of the entire class, team work is of the utmost importance. Class homeroom teachers are heavily involved in the day’s events and take great pride in their classes’ success. The School Sports Festival usually draws many family members to the event, as parents and teachers participate in a few showcase events for laughs.
