Welcome to the Japanese SCHOOL -VISITING is believing- ⑥School Events - Graduation CeremonyWelcome to the Japanese SCHOOL -VISITING is believing- ⑥School Events - Graduation CeremonyWelcome to the Japanese SCHOOL -VISITING is believing- ⑥School Events - Graduation CeremonyWelcome to the Japanese SCHOOL -VISITING is believing- ⑥School Events - Graduation CeremonyGraduation ceremony is held in March, when the school year ends in Japan.  The ceremony is held in the school gym with all the students, their parents and the teachers.  The highlight of the ceremony is the moment when the graduates receive a diploma from the principal on the stage while people are paying attention to them.  In elementary and junior high schools, diplomas are handed to each student after their name is called by their teacher.  They go up to the stage and receive a diploma from the principal.  In most high schools, on the other hand, each student is called one after another by their teacher but the representatives of each class receive the diplomas for all the students in the class.

After that, the representative of non-graduates and graduates make a speech in that order.  A speech made by the graduate usually makes us shed tears as the speech is always very touching.  In elementary and junior high schools, the graduates turn around and face their parents and the non-graduates sitting in the back of the gym and they thank them singing a song for them.  This is a very touching moment and many girls are crying while singing.

Excellent communication with Yuki. All questions were answered promptly while preparing for the tour. He is patient, dedicated to his job and speaks very good English (he was a former English teacher). Time to see the sights of Hakodate was limited (1 day only) and challenging due to snowing but Yuki was able to show us a lot of places in a short time and he gave us time to enjoy the snow (we were...

Our group of 8 spent the day touring Hakodate with Yuki in a private van hired for the day. We enjoyed our visit to Hakodate and all the sites that Yuki managed to pack into our short stay. Our lunch stop was especially memorable as we all tried different things. We were fortunate to experience the last days of the cherry blossoms in northern Japan - Yuki understood our wishes and ensured that...

We booked many private tours on this trip to Japan,but Yuki was the best tour guide. His English is outstanding, his knowledge of Aomori was excellent, he was fun and flexible and he took us to a restaurant frequented by locals that was both great and very inexpensive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Yuki very highly.
