New Enoshima Aquarium

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI went to the New Enoshima Aquarium at the first day of school trip. It was the first time to visit there. I did not have a lot of time to spend in the aquarium, but I enjoyed the show of dolphins and seals. Seals performed their dance. Also, they could clap their fins too. In addition, Dolphins obeyed people and performed perfectly. They can sing and jump beautifully.  I supposed that dolphins seem to be dogs which are raised by humans. In short, I realized that they are more genius than I expected.

As everyone knows, dolphins are mammals like humans. They do not have any languages, but they can talk through Ultrasonic waves. Even though they cannot use “humans’ language, they already can understand human’s body language or some words. So, I think they could understand our language and speak like human someday.

Shibuya

309451832_5c7b91d189Shibuya is one of the most popular tourist spot in Japan, and Shibuya station is known as one of the busiest stations in the world. As we all know, Hachiko (ハチ公) is the symbol of Shibuya, so I’m sure most of you have ever waited for your friends there. Just because Hachiko is a good landmark to wait for someone, sometimes it’s really hard to find them because of too many people. Shibuya Crossing is also famous. It is a big intersection which always crowded with a bunch of people. More than 3000 people walk through the crossing when the lights turn blue. Can you believe it? Whenever I go to Shibuya, I’m so annoyed because of many people but Shibuya is a really good place to go shopping and hang out with friends.

My Study Abroad Destination

CIMG1301University of Washington is one of famous university which is involved in Public Ivy. I studied there for one year and my major in UW was “International Studies” which we can learn about Global Health or International Relathionship between developed and developing countries  especially in Asia. Even though I chose International Studies as my Major, Primary care and Nursing in UW are the best all over the world. Also, this is famous for “Huskies”, because the main character of UW! You can see a lot of huskies around the campus. Also, the color of purple is school color. So, You can see a lot of student who wear purple clothes in the school Events.

Even though studying as a student sounds heard, I really recommend to study there. You can experience what is “real” American university students’ life is.

 

 

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!

Happy

imageNow, it’s popular to remake “HAPPY” by Pharrell Williams. It’s hard for all of people to think what really happy is. The definition of happiness is totally different depending on people. It could be money, friends, family, hobby, work….. After came back to Japan, I realized how I was being happy to study in other country. The time in U.S is or will be my most important and educational time in my life. To continue such a nice time in Japan is kind of difficult. One of the reasons is I have to do more stuff than I was in U.S, so I can’t spend enough time for my learning.
Why are people learning? I guess study leads us to grow up even though it’s sometimes slow and failed. I don’t believe every effort make successes but at least people only who make efforts can get successes and I think the successes is connected to a happiness.
