Tips for Japanese Culture (1) School Excursion

by Tak

Tips for Japanese Culture (1) School Excursion”SHUGAKU RYOKO" or  school excursion is travel events which most of Japanese middle schools and high schools conduct. Literally, it means “an excursion performed before the graduation”. As a matter of fact, probably due to preparation for examination, most schools perform school excursions in the 2nd grade or early period of 3rd grade. Many of students in Tokyo and Kanto region go to Kyoto and Nara while local students head for Tokyo. You may see groups of students who wear same school uniforms at Asakusa-Sensoji temple, Meiji-Jingu shrine, Imperial Palace or other sightseeing spots and joyfully seeking their souvenirs. They might be on school excursions.

In recent years, the purpose of school excursions has been changed from prizes of graduation to studies in historical spots. They are required to write reports. It might be toil and I’m not sure it is right or wrong.

Hi, my name is Tak.

I have seen travelers.
And, I found they got tired of typical sightseeing spots, like crowded temples and shrines.

There must be spots fit to your feeling and interests, more in Japan.
Then, I’d like to propose.
Why don’t you start unique and original tour, only your hearts bring to yourselves?

I had guided
Pokemon tour
Ghost story tour
Inari Shrines tour
Live house tour
Bento (lunchbox) tour
Textile tour
Papermaking tour
I’ll search the site you want to see and create your unique itinerary.

First, could you give your message about things you want to do and see in Japan?
Let’s make great time you can’t never forget.

Thank you so much.
I live in SHITAMACHI, Tokyo, or old residential town near ASAKUSA and UENO. My hobby is strolling and I walk about this area almost every day. I know even the smallest path, big and small museums, workshops of artisans, an impressive view of gigantic tree, a beer bar in an impressive old house, unique souvenir shops, cats living in Yanaka and many, many other attractive spots in this area.

You can expect a day that nobody read in guide books.
I hope you name me as the navigator of your fantastic memory-making-tour!!!!

I’m 61-year-old and I still love rock’n roll music. If you want to enjoy live music in Tokyo, I can also arrange the location and occasion according to your mood and boom. read more
