My seventh blog

Hi this is my seventh blog and it will be last writing.
I’ll have a short break in my blogs because I’ll have such a busy schedule from now on to take the teachers’ exam this year. I need lots of study time to pass this exam. Therefore I hard to say but I’m going to take leave from this blog!
If I restart it someday, please read it again. Bye for now!!

Hi this is my sixth blog.

This time, I’m going to talk about Nagoya Castle. It has the anniversary which had built for 400 years ago. General Tokugawa built it in 1610 as the first owner. Tokugawa is the one of really famous for Japanese historic samurai.

The Nagoya government also made the featuring popular character goods for this event. It’s called ‘’Hachi-maru’’. When the gate of Nagoya castle opened, many people celebrated this event on January of 3rd. Some of them were ‘’Omotenashi-tai’’ who impersonates Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu that I have already introduced in my third blog. This anniversary became a quite marvelous event.
According to the Chunichi website, people said that everything will be nice and safe this year because of this event.

One of Educational Problems in Japan

Hi! This is my fifth blog!

I’m going to talk about one of Japan’s educational problems. It is called “elementary school first grade students problem”. According to the Chunichi web, many students cannot sit and compose themselves during class. They usually walk and shout. They completely disturb the class.

The cause of this problem is when they enter elementary school, they have never taken long classes like elementary school. They cannot be accustomed to new surroundings. It’s a serious problem for a Japanese education system in the future. Therefore the teachers make some activities which kindergarten students can visit an elementary school to solve that problem.

In my opinion, I don’t think that these activities can solve this education problem. According to the Chunichi website, the populations of teachers who cannot scold are increasing nowadays. In addition, the Chunichi website said the population of the parents who is indulgent toward their children is increasing too.

Santa Claus is coming!!

Hi! This is my fourth blog.

This time I’m going to talk about Santa Claus. Santa Claus came to Nagoya form Finland on November 29th. Finland is his motherland.

The purpose of this event, Japanese company of airport would like to increase the number of passengers who are from Finland. This event has been held for the past four years. In addition, he will be visiting the nursing institutions and meet the physically challenged people.

Santa Claus holds a photography event with just 20 pairs per day. When he is on stage, most of children seem to be really curious about his mustache and costume more than the photography event.

In my opinion, Japanese really love Christmas day. Even we don’t belong to particular religions, we want to spend a nice time at this day. We don’t usually think about a religion when we celebrate any special day. It’s thought that every event is just for relaxation and having a break.

Hi! This is my second Nagoya News!
This time, I’m going to talk about Christmas in Nagoya. There’re many Christmas illuminations which are attracted by lots of lights and romantic atmosphere. According to the Chunichi Web, an announcer asked 1000 people who live in Nagoya about “Where do you want you to go to watch an illumination?” Now I’m going to introduce to you about the ranking of illumination!!!

As a result, the second most popular illumination was “Nagoya South Port”. There’s quite a big tree which tall is over 15 meters very near the sea!

The best popular one was “Illumination of Nagoya Station”. It is the hugest illumination and it seems a really romantic and extremely fantastic place. There are a tunnel of light, a clock tower and a shopping mall. Almost everyone said “It’s the best place to see the illumination”.

You will spend a good time with your partner, family and friends in there! If you are interested in these places, you absolutely will enjoy your time.

Nagoya News ①

Hi~ Nice to meet you! Welcome to my Nagoya News!!

This time, I'm going to talk about "Big Jumpper".It's an incident about a funny little Monkey's story which escaped from a cage in zoo.

On October 13th, the Japanese monkey escaped from her cage to outside of zoo!! She jumped over 4 meters!!! Her tall is just about 50 centimeters. Can you believe that?!? The monkey which is just 50 centimeters
jumped over 4 meters!! I think that it's the world record of Jumpper for Monkey world!!

The curator said that "I couldn't expect that. Sorry to suprise every visiters." She was
running away to a forest, but finally she was caught five days later..

It's actually doing like this incident for the frist time in there. This zoo has a really long history which is about 100 years!! However any incident had ever happened until this Monkey's Jumpper.So then, it became a big news in Nagoya.

After I knew this news, I got some feeling. I thought that this monkey just wanted to free like a bird. When we think about the monkey's feeling, that becomes a serious problem. Because people just want to see many animals for entertainment, and then they are caught by people.

Next time, I'll write about Cristmas in Nagoya. Please looking forward to seeing it on my blog!
