Most Japanese schools hold graduation ceremonies around February and March.

My Japanese school had the graduation ceremony in February 11. Actually, if I were in Japan, I would graduate this year. Th

Participating in the ceremony was a dream that did not come true for me. It has also been my dream  to study English in Minnesota again so I do not even have one regret, and I am grateful to Cotter schools for accepting me willingly.

Let’s get back on the topic. The graduation ceremony took place in Okinawa at Shougaku High School.  Cotter and Okisho(Okinawa Shougaku) are exchange schools.

Okinawa’s graduation ceremonies are very interesting and a little bit different compare to other prefectures. For example, when graduation students walk “Hanamiti(flower road)” , their friends and parents give something(snacks, a bunch of flowers, …etc) to them. However, schools of other prefectures are not like that.

He is my homeroom teacher in Japan. His name is Mr. Oshiro. He also graduated from this school few years ago.

His dream was that become a teacher of this school. He was in charge of senior class first time in this year. I interviewed him about  change his state of mind that had the graduation ceremony the day as different position. He told me “I can not thank you enough. Of course, for my class. However, I would like to say THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS on your graduation to all of 33rd class of the students!”. 

 

 

“The 33th class is AWESOME”.
