Training camp

Training camp 2023
May 3~5, Reiwa 5, Kawaguchiko, Yamanashi

We held our annual training camp for 2 nights and 3 days.
The classification of the new coronavirus infection under the Infectious Diseases Act will be lowered to "Class 5", the same as seasonal influenza, from May 8, and May 3 is in the midst of Golden Week, which is full of a sense of liberation for the first time in several years. The departure meeting place "Busta Shinjuku" was full of many people and was very busy.
Elementary school students participating for the first time, elementary and junior high school students who participate in the event every year, and more than 50 high school students boarded the express bus carrying large Boston bags and backpacks.
Under a cloudless blue sky that could be said to be "May sunny," anticipation and nervousness increased as Mt. Fuji gradually became larger and larger as the train window saw ahead.
Even though the departure time from "Busta Shinjuku" to "Kawaguchiko Station" was earlier than usual, it took 4 hours to arrive due to traffic congestion on the Chuo Expressway.
At Kawaguchiko Station, the Nakazaki Soke who had been in the area from the previous day greeted us and said to each of them, "You came here often," and the fatigue of the long trip was blown away in an instant.
Arrive at the inn, have lunch, divide the room, and move on to the gymnasium.
At first, all the participants introduced themselves and announced their enthusiasm, then they were divided into classes and the rehearsals began.
