On the way to school

世界の果ての通学路I read an article about students in Kenyan. They walked two hours from thier house to school on foot every day. They had to walk through a savanna. They could choose a way that they didn’t go to a school because too dangerous. However they went to a school because they wanted to know many things. We think it is natural that we get an education so we can’t realize that we are living in a good environment. I think many university students in Japan are thinking it is normal to go to a school and to get an education. I want them to realize that it is not natural and I want them to change their mind and to study hard more because they are givin a chance to get an education. Also this story was made into a movie so if you interested in this one, you should watch it! The title of this movie is “On the way to school”. Please watch a video!

Yorii Hojyo Matsuri

imageI would like to introduce about a festival of my hometown. This festival is a reproduction of the battle in 1590. The battle happened in Yorii town, just north of Tokyo. The big inning of this festival is the kickoff ceremony of the battle with armor-clad warriors of five hundred strong and they march down the street.
After the parade they start the battle at Arakawa river. We can hear the report of guns and the voice of people. This battle is between Hideyoshi Toyotomi and Ujikuni Hojyo. Hideyoshi attacked Odawara with 50,000 soldiers and Ujikuni met the approaching enemy with only 3,500 soldiers. You will be surprised by impact of this festival. See a short video here. image
