Parents at the Tabaru Aiji Preschool in Tabaru, Naha City, held a snow-play party for the children on February 6. Three-hundred children and their parents attended the event to play with white snow sent from Hokkaido.

The event was held by the parents’ association led by Tomomi Nakamoto, Noriko Hamakawa, and Izumi Arakaki. The group prepared 12 boxes of snow with support from their acquaintances in Hokkaido. Yelping “cold!” the children spent a rare time playing with snow and making snowmen.

Nakamoto celebrated the success of the event as she commented, “This will be a good memory for the children. As we had exciting news of having sleet in Okinawa, we are glad that we got them to experience real snow.”
