Karate Club Summer Camp 空手道部の夏合宿!

During August 2-5 the school karate club went to Iiyama City (Village?) in Nagano Prefecture for our summer camp.
8/2−5、長野県飯山市で夏合宿を行いました。

This is the same dojo connected to the Japanese inn that the club has come to for maybe over 30 years!
この道場は旅館に接続されていて、おそらく築30年間以上だと思います!

Training menu for 4 days was basically;
7am jog
7:30am breakfast altogether
9:30-12noon morning practice - skipping (2000), warm-up, standing basics, moving basics
12:30pm lunch
2:30-6pm afternoon practice - same menu, but if there was time, ido kumite & uchi komi kumite
6:30pm dinner
9pm check student's training diaries

だいたいの毎日のスケジュール;
7:00 30分ジョギング
7:30 朝食
9:30-12:00 午前中稽古(縄跳び2000、体操、基本、移動基本)

4 hours by highway bus from Tokyo, then 52 minutes by a small train into the mountains, then the Japanese inn bus picked us up. Nothing outside by farmer's fields, forests and many different bugs, even fireflies!
東京から高速道路バスに4時間乗って、長野駅からローカル線で52分。旅館の方が飯山駅に迎えにきてくれました。周りには何もなく、あるのは畑・農園、いろんな種類の虫が大量にいるのみ。蛍もいましたよ!
