"One out of twenty"

Do you know what this number represents?

Find out reading this impressive speech written by one second-year student from Kenkashi. Her ideas definitely must be shared with everyone who is living in such an age of diversity.

Breaking the Curse

| by 職員
What a beautiful day!

Believe it or not, Kenkashi has long been believed to be cursed on sports day. Whatever date is chosen for sports day, it rains. Every year without fail. The event is then rescheduled and the following week gets messed up.

So what about this year’s sports day, which is today? Is there a girl out there manipulating the weather like in that movie?

Whatever the cause, the curse is undone! Today is the day that you shine.

Just do it.

From our ALT, Gerard: Weather

| by 職員

While walking to school today, I kept wondering to myself how long it will be until summer ends. Coming from Texas, I should be used to the heat, but the humidity is much worse in this part of Japan.


Since this is my second year living in Japan, I’m looking forward to the cooler climate coming with the fall. Being wet on clear, sunny days is just wrong.


And even though it’s my second year here, the typhoon this weekend was the worst I’ve experienced in Japan so far. The news that this was the first typhoon to hit Chiba in 10 years came as a shock. Other teachers I know in the southern part of Chiba were without power for a few days, and school schedules were completely changed.


While thinking about all these things about the weather, about how we can’t change it yet complain about it so much, I heard a dog barking. I looked at it laying outside in this heat with its full coat of fur and finally thought: It could be worse.

Celebrating the Sunrise

| by 職員
The 49th Reimeisai, the cultural festival, is coming up this weekend. Everyone seems to be excited and working hard toward it, but how many of you would actually be able to explain the meaning of “Reimei”?

The origin of the word “Reimei” dates back to the Muromachi era and can be translated as “dawn (/dɔːn/)” in English, which is defined as “the first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise.” It also means “ the beginning of something.”

It is not certain who named it and why they chose that name. However, the name certainly does inspire one to seek new beginnings.
