Asakusa and Ueno Park on August 27; The End of Summer Vacation
Many thanks for joining us on our tours at Asakusa in the morning and Ueno Park in the afternoon on August 27th. We welcomed 44 guests from the USA, Spain, Germany, Argentina, Australia, India, Indonesia, Denmark, Estonia, Singapore, and Croatia. It was a tremendous opportunity for us to meet wonderful guests from many countries and share interesting conversations. Also, it was really nice seeing some of you on both tours. As promised, group photos and snapshots are attached so that you can remember the fun times we had during the tour. Occasional rain was predicted, but we could avoid it. It was extremely humid, so staying hydrated was crucial. Some guests even bought shaved ice and soft-serve ice cream during our tour.
In Japan, summer vacation for most students usually ends in late August. Common summer assignments for elementary students consist of doing projects on their own, writing book reports, and creating illustrated diaries. Students often take on “independent research,” often in the field of science, where they can pick their own topics. A “book report” involves writing an essay about a book given by the teacher. An “illustrated diary” is when you use words and drawings in a notebook to share your summer memories. Towards the end of summer, some students might put in a lot of effort to finish these assignments.
The combined tour with Asakusa in the morning and Ueno Park in the afternoon is not mandated, but it is just our recommendation. You can choose either of the tours as you wish.
