Tsukuba Women's University will hold its annual school festival on Oct. 25 & 26. Visitors can see examples of student's work and enjoy some of the cheap but delicious dishes that will be for sale in the courtyard adjoining the pedestrian path. On Sunday the 26th, weather permitting, there will be an outdoor concert given by the university brass band. (This will start at 11:30.)
Another outdoor attraction on the same day will be a performance of traditional Japanese drumming and dancing given by the well-known group, Tanaka-bayashi. This performance lasts about half an hour and will start from 2:00. Don't miss it!
Another event to look out for on the Sunday is the bazaar, which is selling mostly household goods at very cheap prices. For newcomers to Tsukuba, this will be a good opportunity to get some of the household items they might need. The bazaar will be located in the courtyard and will start from 10:00.
Tsukuba Women's University is located on Kita Odori at the pedestrian path. If you require further information, please e-mail Clive at langham[at]in.kasei.ac.jp You can also phone on 0298-58-6336 (office hours, lunch time best).
October 25 is the day for the annual Gakuen Church Bazaar. Beginning at 12:30, there will be plenty of good buys on various donated items along with good food.
It seems there are a lot of bazaars and festivals happening on the same day, so you can really make the rounds on that last weekend. Even the Tsukuba City Festival, which up until last year was held on the first weekend in September, has now been moved to this same weekend. It will be held along the bicycle path between the Expo Center and Takezono Park. So enjoy making the rounds!
