Elementary School Entrance Ceremony

Starting school is a big deal in Japan! All the little six-year old first graders dress up in their finest to attend a special opening ceremony, then their parents go with them to see their classroom for the first time, meet their teacher and get some of their school supplies.


  1. Beautiful Pictures, I loved them! I am so much looking forward to teaching in Japan. I love your site, it gives me glimpses into elementary school "life"!

  2. Hello, I hope you don't mind if I follow your blog. Your pictures and videos will show me a lot about the Japanese culture.
