International Futsal Friendly Match “HEARTHEART CUP” was held in Indonesia.
From 9th to 14th April of 2015, we visited Jakarta, Indonesia with the players of Bardral URAYASU as “Team XYZ” supported by Benesse Holdings, Inc. We had some exchange programs in culture and sport such as futsal friendly match “HEARTHEART CUP” and workshops.
Workshop which introduce Japanese culture and education
On 10th April, we visited Pendidikan Kartini Nusantara, the school which accepted children who were in poor families and not be able to go to the public school. About 200 kindergartners and pupils welcomed us with Indonesian traditional instrument Angklung. We introduced children to Kanji (Chinese character) such as “Mountain”, “River” and “Forest“, using an original textbook. We also played with Origami and Japanese paper balloons so that children could deepen their interests in Japanese culture and education.
Next day we invited neighborhood children and hold the futsal workshop at the University Darma Persada established by PERSADA (Association of Indonesian Alumni from Japan) which cooperated with us in holding those workshops.
