Christmas Caroling

From Akita Wiki

Every year in December the JETs of Akita get together under the banner of Charity Akita (formerly AAJ) to sing carols in front of Akita Station in Akita City to raise money for orphans.

Video & Lyrics

Reanud Davies over at the center was kind enough to make a video of the 2011 caroling. If you want a visual of just what the event was, check it out YouTube.

Here is a list of songs (with lyrics) sang in past years.
