School festivals are kind of a big deal in Japan, with students from kindergarten through to university participating in their own school’s festival each year, usually involving games, food cooked by the kids on-site, and the occasional jaw-dropping class project like this full-size teacup ride. University festivals will, in addition, have special performances, and may also feature local or well-known musicians, comedians, and more.

But one university in Gifu Prefecture is spicing up their upcoming festival this month by bringing in none other than Mana Sakuraa Japanese adult film star—for a special talk show, with opportunities for a photo shoot and even a “Kiss-Abstaining Championship”! With cooler weather setting in, there’s nothing like the star of naughty videos to heat things up at a school festival…right?

Twitter user @puku0921 posted a photo of a flier for the festival being held at Gifu University on the 31st of this month, writing: “Other universities have artists and comedians come to their school festivals, but it looks like Gifu University is having an AV actress at theirs.” (“AV” is commonly used in Japanese to refer to adult videos and their stars.)

Using big pink letters, the flier reads: “Mana Sakura…at Gifu University!?”, “Mana Sakura Talk Show: The sex that women really want”, and “Free-talk time! Photo opportunities available! Kiss-Abstaining Championship!”

We are most intrigued by this championship thing, which in Japanese is “Kisu-Gaman Senshuken“, gaman being an oft-used Japanese word that can translate as  “restraint”, “self-control”, and “endurance”. What sort of challenges await the participants, we can only imagine, but it seems we’ll have to wait until the end of the month to find out for certain.

For you skeptics out there that suspect this is just some sort of joke, Ms. Sakura herself has confirmed her participation in the event via her Twitter account: (Careful! As you might expect, some of the images she shares may be NSFW.)

▼ “I earlier announced it was ‘Gifu University School Festival’, but it seems it is actually ‘Gifu University School of Medicine’s School Festival’. I was just notified of it now so I wanted to correct that. It seems like some of the fliers are incorrect too. (; ;) Again, see you guys on 10/31!”

▼ “Looking forward to Gifu”

The Twitter community has, of course, had some things to say about this revelation:

“Everyone in the audience will be male.”

“I lost it at Kiss-Abstinence Championship lolol”

“This is awful! lol”

“I wanna goooo!”

So how was it decided that one of Gifu University’s special guests would be a porn star? Your guess is as good as ours, but we suspect it went something like:
