Do you like studying? No, I do not. I think studying is difficult and boring. However, decades ago, Japanese women could not study as well as Japanese men because there was sex discrimination in Japan. Then, why can I, a Japanese woman, study now? There was one woman’s effort in the background. Today, I am going to introduce a woman whose name is Umeko Tsuda and let me tell you about how respectable she was.

There are many cool people in Japan. Most of them may be said to be from the entertainment industry. For example, I am sure that people who are familiar with Japan, would definitely have heard of Takuya Kimura, otherwise known as KimuTaku, or the girl idol group called AKB48. Truthfully, I am not much of a fan of such famous celebrities. However, I am a fan of a Japanese writer called Tomihiko Morimi, I definitely think that he is worth mentioning and sharing about. For one, his novels are extremely entertaining, with plenty of adventures to go around for all readers.

Is there anyone you respect or admire a lot? I think most people have at least one person they respect or admire. A respected person could help us to get the motivation to pursue our dreams. I have one person who I highly respect and I want to recommend him. It is “Isoroku Yamamoto” who is the respectable commander in Japan. His mind and the quotations always help me find some hints about my life. I’m going to write about his life, the reasons why I respect him and one wonderful quotation he left.

There are a lot of places where I would like to visit around the world. However, this time I chose one prefecture in Japan. The place which I would like to visit is Okinawa. I have never been to Okinawa but I know Okinawa has beautiful beaches. I have heard from my classmate that the distance between beach and school, hotel and house is very close so people in Okinawa can go to beach easily. Things that I want to do in Okinawa are just to go to the beach in the early morning and taking fresh air into my body.

I enjoyed to read your essay. I also know about Yuzuru Hanyu. I think that he is cool guy and his performances are so fantastic! However, you mentioned he had a lot of injuries. While the game in 2015 which was held in China, I could not see him more because the injuries were so pitiful. But his performance and score were wonderful and a lot of audiences were impressed by him. I was one of them. I want to cheer for him forever.
Thanks to your introduction, I could know about him more than before. Thank you.

Your essay is interesting. I know about Saori Kimura but not detail. However, I think she is a wonderful Japanese and we are proud of her. I was impressed by her game in the London Olympics. You mentioned the team which was led by her did great playing then. It is very difficult to lead somebody and she achieved it. She made the most efforts of all of them, right? It is not so easy at all. I also respect her.
I was glad to know about Saori Kimura. I want to cheer for her forever.

I know the name of comic and simple story but do not know detail. Many people around me recommend that comic. I know some characters and I am not sure but maybe the name of my favorite character is Makiba. Is there Makiba in Shingekino Kyojin? If it's not correct I am sorry. I think USJ and Shingekino Kyojin are collaborating now. I went there and took pictures.

At first, I do not about him and I just know the mane of singer because of you. I like music and every day I listen. These days I listen foreign music only so thank you for telling the great Japanese band. The man you wrote can also perform in movie and drama. I was surprised when I read he was singing on TV when he was just 10 years old. I like singing but I am bad singer. I am not good at it so maybe I have to learn how to sing from him.

I was very imprresed by knowing her behavior. I know the name of Tsuda Umeko. I studied about her in history class when I was a junior high school student, but I don't remember so much. She had lots of expericences in foreign countries and she was a very hard worker. If I were her, I would not want to change the Japanese education system because it might be too difficult to realize. Thanks to her, Japanese woman and men can study equally. So I think I should study more like her. I want to be a peson who can make an effort everything.

I understand you really like comedy. I also like it, so I sometimes think that I want to go to see it with someone. I like laughing with watching. I'm no problem if there are so interesting. When I was so tired, it makes me feel better because I get to be fine when I laugh. How about you? I recommend that you should watch it when you are really sick. If we are so happy, we get to be able to do the best, I think, so please continue to likeing it. Your essay is so interesting. I'm looking forward to reading your essay. Take care of yourself. Thank you.

In my country there is a woman who like Umeko Tsuda. I think the story is not different too and The woman who started to have same level with man is inspiring indeed, because 40 years ago women are known as a mother figure that could not do anything like men do. So by her sacrifices, we cannot underestimate women can just do mother’s things. Women have proved that they are smart, intellectual and so on, besides some countries have amazing women as their leader or president.
I think women is stronger than men, because they actually do anything more than men do nowadays, so I really adore women as the best figure to complete men’s life.

I know you really love music and guitar, base, so you really respect kenken. I know him and I respect him too, but I didn not know him in detail. I did not know about his parents. Especially, I was surprised at his mother Mari Kaneko is a rock singer. I did not know and maybe she is very cool. In additon, I know about Nobuaki Kaneko a little. I know he plays drum and he is actor. I never watch the movie or drama of his, but I want to try watch them. I could notice how kenken is a cool Japanese again. Thank you.

She is really impressive girl. I think I like her too. Girls who can do anything is something that I adore. I wonder how you like her so bad, but I think one of the reasons is you and her have same interest like sport especially softball. I wanted to play softball when I was a junior high school, but you know actually softball is not a famous sport in my country, maybe next time I wish I had a chance to play softball in Japan with classmate. I think joining softball team is required us to have equipment too, does not it? So I need to get money first so that I can buy uniform, shoes and so on. I hope can play softball in summer vacation.
