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.
