We meet in one of the member’s house. It is in a relaxed atmosphere. We start the meeting by singing a song “Let’s begin” followed by registration writing on a board a date, a day, weather and season. The other activities include singing songs, card games, reading books and craft. We finish by singing a closing song.
There are 33 ICBunko throughout the UK (as of June 2019). These are attended by about 550 children aged from around 2 to 9 years old. Each ICBunko is organised by the parents of the children. ICBA UK supports them with supplies of books, information and regular meetings. This is the list of all the ICBunko currently in the UK.
We welcome Japanese families, students and other volunteers who live in the Liverpool area.
We are based in Merseyside and Chester area. We meet every week at one of our member’s house. Our bunko has 13 children (7 families). The main activities include crafts, reading books, singing songs and Kamishibai. Our aim is to create a fun environment for using Japanese language, so that using Japanese becomes a part of children’s everyday life.
