It’s getting colder and colder in Japan as it becomes autumn. Japanese often define it as the season for feasting, reading, sports and so on. However, for students, the season might be defined as the time for school festivals. Universities in this season come alive with students preparing for the festival. The festival offers not only the opportunity to experience their daily lives but also talk shows and live concerts. Idols are no exception. Universities come to invite idols and have events with them. Tickets for these event tend to be cheaper than other events, so if you have even a little bit of interest, it is recommended for you to enjoy Japanese school festivals!
