Nagisa Hiroshima pasadena exchange 2013
Transcript of Nagisa Hiroshima pasadena exchange 2013
MY TIME IN JAPAN
WHAT I LEARNT IN JAPAN
The Shinkansen is only ever 10 seconds late
At the peace park there is a fire and they will not put it out until there are no nuclear weapons
The atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima at 8:15am
Since the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima it has been hard to grow things
I learnt how to speak a little bit of japanese
The mothers do everything. The cleaning, cooking and the washing
Peace is really important to the Japanese
This is a photo of my home stay and my host mother
My apartment in Japan
My apartment was smaller than my house here. It had 3 small bedrooms, a lounge, a narrow laundry room, a kitchen, 1 toilet and a bathroom.
I was really lucky to have my own room. I slept on a wodden bed with a 5cm mattres and a thin pillow that was filled with beans that are in a bean bag. I had a pretty good view as well.
GOING TO SCHOOL
Getting to school
It took me about an hour and 20 minutes to get to school every school day. I had to walk to a train station and catch the train, then get off and catch another train and stay on for quite a long time, then get off at a train station and then walk the rest of the way to school.
These are some photos
The hardest, most fun, happiest, the best and the easiest part of the exchange for me was
The hardest- The hardest part of the exchange for me was leaving my family and eating different food bacause I am quite a fussy eater.
The most fun- The most fun part of the exchange was going out with my host family.
The happiest- The happiest part of the exchange was going to school and seeing everyone after the weekend
The best- The best was going to places in the car because the chairs were so comfortable and there were two T.V's in the car.
The easiest- The easiest was making the most out of the whole exchange and just having a good time.
Nagisa has fake grass and here at Pasa we have real grass
The students at Nagisa have to clear their school and here we have care takers
They have 3 vending machines. 2 with drinks and 1 with waffles and these bread things that are sort of like doughnuts. There is also a cafiteria which is just for the seniors.
The differences between
Nagisa and Pasadena
This photo pretty much sums up the exchange for me because this is a photot of my host family and I when we first met and they were the ones who looked after me.
WHAT I LEARNT AT NAGISA
I learnt that they have 3 bins. One for waste, one for recycling and one for bottle caps. They collect the bottle caps because they have a machine that melts the bottle caps, then turns it into oil that creats power for their music show they have.
There was only japanese students at Nagisa but I did see about 4 students that were from America but they could speak Japanese and engish very well.
At every class they say something before starting the class and when the class is finished and While they are doing this they shut their eyes
While we were going to school at Nagisa we took part in some activities such as their sports day, caligraphy, flower arranging and a tea ceremony.
Here are some photos of the activities we did.
But sadly we had to leave. So on our last day at school we had 2 assemblies. 1 with a little bit of the school and the other with our host families. The next day we got up very early and made our way to the Shinkansen station. Then hoped on the Shinkansen and left Hiroshima.
My inquiry focus is
How has this Exchange changed me?
I have a different prespective on the world and I'm not just limited to New Zealand, I apreciate other cultures, the similarities between my culture and the Japanese culture, comunication, get on with other personalities and I like alot of food I didn't like before. Also now I am more willing to try things that I havent't tried before and I have gained confidence for when speaking in front of alot of people
THINGS I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER
At Miyajima i got tired so my homestay lloked at a map and tried to find a quick way back.
THE VENDING MACHINES WERE EVERYWHERE including at school.
MY HOMESTAY WOULD ALWAYS APOLOGISE FOR THINGS WHEN IT WAS MY FAULT
I WILL NEVER EVER FORGET MY HOST FAMILY
IF THERE WERENT ENOUGH CHAIRS ON THE TRAIN FOR MY HOMESTAY AND I, MY HOME STAY WOULD ALWAYS GIVE THE SEAT TO ME
THE PHOTO BOOTHS, Video arcades and the 100 yen shops
The 2 small tvs and the automatic doors
While I was in Japan I went on outtings to Takihara, Miyajima, the peace park and the sushi train
The sports that they do at Nagisa is nothing like the sports we do here at Pasadena.
They have longer days and they also go to school on a Saturday
Thakns for watching :)
