Owaranai Natsu 「終わらない夏」

One’s childhood is often remembered as a time of carefree bliss and excitement, a fragile season of high hopes for days of endless summer. UP Philippines-Japan Friendship Club, also known as UP Tomo-Kai, wishes to bring this tender nostalgia to all in a series of celebrations designed to bring  out the childlike wonder in everyone. It is a season to remind us of how confidently we looked towards the future as children, and to enlighten us on how optimistically we may look towards the future now.


T
his July 2013, UP Tomo-Kai will once again hold its anniversary celebration entitled “Owaranai Natsu 「終わらない夏」: A Season of Bliss”. Owaranai natsu literally means “endless summer”. Our line-up of events are as follows:
