Tosabori Carnival / Family Carnival, Student Bazaar

What is the Tosabori Carnival/Family Carnival?

The Tosabori Carnival/Family Carnival is held on November 3 (Culture Day) every year and people involved with the Osaka YMCA get together to run stalls and stages to spend an enjoyable day together.
The Osaka YMCA Japanese Language School runs the International Stall Village every year and the international students cook and sell their own countries’ dishes, which is quite popular. The earnings on this day are used for many purposes with which the YMCA is involved, such as support for persons with disabilities, international peace activities and disaster area support. Some of the earnings are also used to support students learning at Japanese language schools.
