A Mystery Japanese Elementary School
Hi, there. Thank you for watching our blog.
I’ve watched TV show the other day. The TV show is about a strange elementary school. This title meaning is not scary thing.
In Japan, there are 47 prefectures, and they have a well-known local product. For example, Ehime is known as a local specialty of orange. Kobe is known as a local specialty of Kobe beef. Uji city, Kyoto is known as a local specialty of Japanese green tea named Uji tea. In Uji city, you can drink Japanese green tea from the tap at elementary school. Just turn on tap and drink green tea. That’s so weird! But it’s common for them who go to the elementary school to drink green tea from the tap. So I’ve been talking to them about it. Though they already graduated from elementary school, they thought it was common to drink green tea from the tap every elementary school. But this matter isn’t only Uji city, Kyoto. Actually you can drink orange juice from the tap at one of elementary school of Ehime. Because of Ehime is known as a local specialty of orange. That’s so funny. I’m really interested in Japanese elementary school. Though I’m Japanese, my elementary school comes out only water from the tap. I wonder if Kobe beef comes out from the tap at Kobe’s elementary school.
P.S Please examine about it if you work at TV company like CNN. Perhaps, you may find new tap in Japan.
