Many students attend each school and they study a lot of subjects, but in school, there sometimes happens fighting or quarrel and so on. Along with those, bullying happens. Bullying is one of the most famous problems. Close to 224,540 reports of school bullying, or ijime in Japanese, emerged in 2015-16, according to the ministry. That was a 19 percent increase from the previous year — though officials say part of the rise was due to heightened awareness resulting from the 2013 law (Lim, 2017).

I am sure that you, who are reading this essay, really love animals. I love animals too. They are so cute, and they make us happy or relaxed. However, some of them are in danger of extinction because of climate change. According to scientists’ research, two-thirds of wild animals will disappear from the earth by 2020 (Jacky, 2016). Today, I am going to talk about what the effects of global warming on animals are, and how to prevent it.

Currently in Japan, only medical doctors are able to administer tattoos legally (Marsh, J., Ogura, J. & Kobayashi, C., 2017). According to the little-known law, tattooing involves a needle protruding into the skin, which is similar to injections done by nurses or doctors, thus relating tattooing to medical practices. This led to tattoo artists being unable to make a living, or enjoy the freedom of carrying out their profession. What kind of problems are there, precisely? And how are the artists dealing with the issue?

There are many smokers in the world. In 2007, WHO said that 1.1 billion people are smoking in the world, accounting for 1/3 of the world's population over the fifteen years. In particular, there are many smokers in developing countries. That number is 800 million. 700 million of them are men. 200 million men and 100 million women are smoking cigarettes in developed countries. In Japan, 20 million men and 7 million women are smoking. I want cigarette to disappear from the world. It is because smoking is not good for health.

When you wake up every morning, what do you do first? I usually check LINE on my smartphone. In the train for school, I often read the text messages on Twitter. After I get home, I cannot help touching my smartphone and I chat with my friends on LINE and Twitter by turns. To be honest, I feel tired from chatting on SNSs these days. Have you ever felt that SNS is such a bother? Japan has a lot of problem caused by SNSs, for example, bullying, leaking private information, and so on. I think SNS is not necessary for us.

Do you know the number of children who can get some educations from parents or teachers? The number of children who can’t get some educations is 59million all over the world. According to the UNISEF study, children without educations can’t adapt to the environment when it changes suddenly. In addition, they might cause some problems to the societies such as homicide, suicide, cruel treatment and so on. This is the human’s crisis to keep our safety life. Now, we should start the “effective educations” to children to improve and solve this situation and problems.

Hello my name is Padli. I am from Kansai International University of
Study Japan.

I read your article and it reminds me about the homeless in my country in
Indonesia. They do not only have home, address and many more to live.
Sometimes they commit crimes like stealing someone's wallet. They also sing
songs with guitar to get money in front of people’s house. I know these are
the only things that they can do to survive, but it is really annoying
for us. Unfortunately, the number will not shrink because it is too high.
It is different in Japan. I have lived in Osaka, Japan for more than 4
years and I have only seen the homeless in a village.
I do not know why there are no many homeless people here even though the
living expenses
are quite expensive, but in 2016 while Tokyo counts fewer homeless in
daytime, advocacy group finds higher numbers at night, totaled 1,473.
Although they do not show up at stations or big parks frequently, some
people who thought their financial situation is unstable, they stay at
internet cafes, but they are not classified as homeless, so Tokyo
government assumes that there are still a number of homeless who are not
counted accurately (Osumi, 2016). Homelessness in every country has
different condition depending on the way of their thinking and how
the government is taking care of them. In my opinion, the government should
give them education so that they can get skills to do a job or do
business and have a bright future.

In the case of Canada, do you think this problem will be solved if the
government will prioritize it, or there are just way too many of them that
the national budget will not be enough if your suggestions will be
implemented?

Hi, Gabriel. This is Shimin from Hyogo, Japan. Your posting is very informative.

It is undeniable that gun possession, gun control, and gun violence are major problems in America, that absolutely cannot be neglected. However, it is a larger problem when guns itself becomes the assumed method of solving the issue. Across articles that I have read before, there are Americans who used to not own guns. They started possessing them, in hope of protecting themselves from the real offenders who abuse the possession of the arms. It is truly a problem when Americans think that
the solution to the issue, is the issue itself. Having this mindset will only increase the number of people carrying guns in America, and not help at all with the idea to decrease gun violence.

In Japan, there are hardly any gun-related cases. Although it is difficult to say for the yakuza (mafia), gun possession is against the law. There are hunters in Japan who are allowed to possess and use them, but only with a license that is very tightly controlled. The process of obtaining the license is very strict, to the point that the authorities will actually ask parties related to the concerned hunter, in order to judge if the license can be processed.

America can solve the gun issue, only if she is truly determined to get rid of the arms in the country. However, it can be very complicated as the number of people involved is very huge, and the culture between America and Japan is very different.

What are the gun laws in Canada?

Your essay was interesting for me. I like figure skate, so of course I know Yuzuru Hanyu. I think he is really genius figure skater. Especially, I think quadruple jump is great. I cannot jump even one spin. I often see him on TV, and I think his performance is so fantastic. Maybe, I think Yuzuru Hanyu makes an effort everyday and praactice hard training. I want to be stronger both of physical and mental like him. I could change my mind, because of your essay. Thank you.

I know Hayao Miyazaki and I think that he is very famous man. Also, he made very interesting Ghibli works. Especially, I like Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi (Spirited Away). When I was a child, I often watched the movie because it is very interesting story. In addition, he cherished his own perspective, so I think that he became a famous man around the world, too. I respect him because he keeps making works without giving up and he makes his effort day by day. Then, I thought that keeping my effort is important for me. I hope that I will see him some time.

I know Kohei Uchimura. He is very famous player around the world. He makes his effort every day, so I respect him. Many people will usually keep their efforts during two or three days. However, it is difficult to keep efforts every day. Also, he takes only one meal a day, so I was very surprised. He manages his body day by day. I thought that it is not easy to keep a health. In addition, I thought that his character is great, so I think that he is loved by many people around the world. I hope that I will see him some time.
