COVID-19 Updates: Spring Events!

Hello good citizens of Kumamoto!

We hope that these days of desk-warming and being house-bound have treated you well. In the spirit of social distancing, we here at KumAJET HQ have made a tough decision: along with the cancellation of Round 1, Round 2, we have decided to cancel our yearly hanami on March 29th.

However, as of now, Kumafest is still continuing as planned on May 23rd and 24th. As the situation in May becomes more clear, we will update all of you on whether it’s feasible! We will be sending out emails, Facebook events, and other news on that soon, so keep an eye out.

In the meantime, read that book that you’ve been meaning to get to, start that creative project you’ve had stuck in your head for the longest time, and finish binging that TV show. Also, call your mom or that friend you need to reconnect with, they’ve been waiting to hear from you. Stay strong everyone!


Round 1, Round 2!

Dear Kumamotoans,


We hope that your 2020 has gotten off to a good start! What with the school year wrapping up, entrance exams and finals, it can be a hectic time of year for many of us. We’d love for all of you to join us on Saturday, Feb. 29th, for Round 1, Round 2!

Round 1!

Catch us in Round 1 at 7 Chome-25-15 Kasuga, Nishi Ward! We will be in Sportcha, the upper floor, from 12 – 5pm. Come for all that time or some of that time, we’ll be around!

Sportcha has bowling, baseball cages, bubble soccer, karaoke, and more! For free time, it’ll be ~2600 yen, while it’ll be ~2400 yen for 3 hours, and ~2000 for 90 minutes.

Round 2!

Come through to Jeff’s World Bar, one of Kumamoto City’s most popular international bars. Cheap drinks, no cover, and a good time to be had by all!! We’ll be there from 8pm onward.

Besides Round 1, Round 2, we will be having other events, like hanami on March 28th and KumaFest in May! Keep your calendars ready and eyes peeled for more information on those! See y’all around!
