Today is Graduation Day!

In Japan, graduation ceremonies differ in several ways from what we see in other parts of the world.


1- The Japanese school year ends in March and begins in April

2- Instead of graduation robes, Women usually wear beautiful colourful hakama attire, a “traditional formal Japanese attire” which differ from kimonos. Men often attending in regular suits and ties, though a small percentage would like to wear the male hakama attire.

3- in more countries, there is a call to invite each student to receive the certificate, in Japanese ceremony only calling the class representative to receive all the certificates, then they distribute.
