Meeting with Japanese children in Cyprus

Cyprus Go Association and Otakucy members had a meeting on 4th of January 2012 with Japanese Children who visited Cyprus from the areas affected from the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
At first the children were presented with photos from Otakucy events (cosplaying etc) and they saw Japan through the eyes of shounen and shoujo!
Then a small presentation of Go was given to them by Argyris Fellas and the children had a chance to play go with the members of the CGA and among themselves. This was an enjoyable event for everyone.
