MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • CalendarOtakuhandout: Cut-up the various Japanese holidays and put them in an envelope.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. The students or yourself draw from the envelope and ask, "When is...?"
  2. The winner is the first to put up his/her hand and say, "It's on..."
  3. The winner also gains the title "Calender Otaku".
