Japan VS US: SCHOOL

Hello, beautiful persons.

I have been homesick for Japan lately… I miss my family and the entire enviornment there. In case you’re new here or just didn’t know, my mom’s entire side of the family is in Japan. Like, everyone. She is the only person from her family in the States. Which makes me half Japanese(side note: the way Japan has things right now, when I turn 22 I have to choose Japanese citizenship or American citizenship because they don’t allow dual citizenship. Petition!! Please.). I’ve been privileged enough to be able to experience elementary and junior high there, and there are a lot of differences between Japanese schools and American schools. A disclaimer, though, when I say “experienced” school in Japan, I’ve attended for about 2 weeks every summer.  Also, this is all based off of what happened to me and the schools I went to. I’m sure there are different things and more similar things about schools in Japan and US depending on where you go:) Fun fact: I actually visited a Japanese school before an American school! (granted, it was a kindergarten tour thingy…) So here is Japan vs USA schooling! Comment/like if you think I should make Japan vs US a series!

Hey guys! I’m really sorry that my summer posting has been extremely unpredictable. What can I say? I’ve just been going with the flow lately!

These ideas are all based off of things I personally would like to receive(I mean, I guess I think I’m a relatable person?😅). Let me know what you received or what you would like to receive in the comments;)

Shinkansen Travels: June 3rd~7th

Hello friends and welcome to another post! Today I have, like, a weeks worth to post about so I think I’m going to have separate it up into different days… this is due to my mum purchasing a JR pass for one week. JR trains are the main way of travel in Japan, and the passes are a really affordable way to get around. Anywho, we had to squish basically all our travel into one week to fit into the time frame.
