This photograph is taken in front of the elementary school gate of Tokyo Bunkyo-ku. On that day, I came out my house, and was taking a walk in the direction of Ueno. On the way, I saw the spectacle of the entrance ceremony of an elementary school. Although it was near the daytime, the new students who finished the entrance ceremony and their parents came out from the school, and had gathered in front of the school gate. A certain family took the commemorative photo and a certain family was having a pleasant chat.
The wholly clear countenance was carried out. From now on, new students will have the elementary school life for six years. In the city, in connection with a child's decrease in the birthrate, the number of classes also became fewer, and streamlining of schools has also come out. There clearly changed from the time of being a baby boom into which I have grown up, now. In Japan, compulsory education is nine years for six years of an elementary school and three years of a junior high school. And, they go on to a high school about 100%, and about 50% of the same ages go on to a university. However, unlike our time employment looks like a severe time nowadays by social structural change as well as other foreign contries. When these children are becoming an adult, it is the our grown-up duty which is made society with comfortable and vitality.

This is a fine picture with a nice and friendly atmosphere. Some small talk among a family and between a mother and her son, others just on their way out. I am glad to see one woman traditionally dressed among all these Western style clothes. The school seems to have a very beautiful location by a park. At least at this time of the year the colours are lovely.

Its nice to see everybody dressed up in formal dresses on the first day in school.Education must be given a lot of priority in Japan as is evident here; else it not would have been so technologically advanced even after the disasters of WWII.I salute the sense of discipline and desire to be among the leaders that the Japanese people display in their lives.Nice work done my friend.TFS.

The rising number of ageing population is a major issue faced by many developed countries and your notes and picture explain this pretty well on the need to adapt to the changes. You have co posed this in the best possible way to illustrate the daily shot with all the highlights well detailed, excellent coloring and exposure which is beutified by the backdrop lush foliage. This is fairly wide coverage image within the constraint, Well done, Congrats
