Season's Greetings from Seiritsu!
We just wanted to wish everyone Season's Greetings and Happy New Years!
Even though most Japanese are Buddhist, many people put up Christmas displays and outdoor lights to simply create a festive atmosphere.
December 25h is a normal work day in Japan. Students are on winter vacation, but special winter study courses are in for two weeks, along with many of the clubs are still meeting for practices. For example, the karate club I coach met at 7am today for a morning training.
Today is also the last open house in 2007 for junior high school students to come to Seiritsu and talk to a teacher about applying to enter here next year. There will be one more day on January 5th, then entrance exams start two weeks after that.
All the best to everyone in 2008!
