Location: Takatsuki, Osaka, Japan

I'm a university student and belong to karate circle in the university. I like sports very much. In my junior high school and high school days, I belonged to volleyball club, and track and field club. I enjoyed both of them, and now I like watching these sports on TV. I also like animals and have a dog and 7 Japanese killifish. I want to have a cat, too. However, my father don't like cats, and my dog, Rug, will chase the cat. So I will not be able to have any cat...

In the summer vacation, I'm going to travel to Okinawa with my friend.
Both of us have never been to there, so we are checking on information about there. Every picture of the sea is very beautiful, and we are so excited!! We will stay there for 4 days and may spend a whole day in the beach.
In addition to going to the beach, we are going to get into a boat with a sheet of glass, which we can look into the sea through it. There are coral and a lot of colorful fish, so that will be fun!
I have other things which I want to do in Okinawa. I heard from my friend that she wore their folk clothes when she went there on her school trip. I was so interested in it to hear that and want to try them if I can. I also want to try foods of Okinawa, but I know few of them. So before I go there, I will check on Okinawa more!!

The festival for freshmen

The festival for freshmen will be held on this Sunday. My karate circle is going to have a performance, and it will be before noon. I was supposed to split 5 tiles with my foot, but I had never split them. So I didn't have confidence in success, and I practiced for it with mitts many times.

On Wednesday, we rehearsed and split what we are going to split on that day except ice pillars. Two boys split two blocks and a bat, and senior and I each split 5 tiles. All of us succeeded, though three of us, including me, got slight wounds in the arms and the foot.

Now I’m more confident in splitting them because I succeeded on Wednesday, but I’m afraid of getting injured again… In addition, I’m not used nor do like to be in public. So I will be very nervous on that day. However, the performance will be vigorous, especially ice pillars, so I recommend you to see at least them.

About Me

I'm Mika who likes LOVE PSYCHEDELICO and karate!

LOVE PSYCHEDELICO is Japanese band. I love their songs. Though LOVE PSYCHEDELICO are Japanese, their songs include many English words. Some of their songs are all in English. Sometimes I don't catch what she sings, but her songs is comfortable to me. Recently, they released their first best album, "Early Times". It has very good songs, so I want you to listen to them.

Karate is one of martial arts, and I have practiced it for one year in karate circle of my university. When I started to practice karate, I didn't know about it at all. However, seniors taught me plainly, and now I have yellow belt! (though it will take four more advances to get black belt in my school...)

Knowing that I practice karate, most of my friends say that I'm tough. However, it is not so hard as they think, especially to girls. You'll see that if you get into karate world! (Maybe.)

On April 24, my university have a festival for freshmen, and my circle is going to do a performance. In the performance, I will split five tiles which are made for such performance. I've never tried it, so I'm very nervous... I'll practice harder to performe successfully!!
