Happy 2019 everyone

Hi everyone!

Hey, it’s been a while since I posted here. I hope everyone is doing well in Grade 6 and beyond. I know that some of you are still in Tokyo but many of you have gone to other parts of the world. I hope you are having a great school year and that your holidays — including celebrating the new year — were good.

2019 is going to be a special year in Japan as we will have a new emperor at the beginning of May. This will be a historical event, and the country is planning to have a longer Golden Week holiday (10 days) to celebrate the occasion. Also, 2019 means one year left before the Summer Olympics and Paralympics come to Tokyo. Already a lot of buildings as well as a new stadium have appeared and everyone is starting to get ready for the big event, which will last just over two weeks.

Let us know how you are doing in your part of the world and leave a comment if you read this. Thanks for stopping in on the blog and hope to see you sometime and somewhere!
