Hello. I'm Tuna, from Kansai Univ. of International Studies. Thank you for writing an great essay.While I was reading your essay, I was shocked because there are lots of incidents killing innocent black people. The number of them was more than I was expected. Police officers are busy, as you mentioned, but they should pay attention to local people and families in the area. The image of police is not good these days, so we have to change it. Your essay was very informative and it taught me a lot. Thanks.

I'm a student in Japan. My name is Yuya^^ I7m really interested in your essay, this is because, you described the important news in network society. I have heard this news before, in China people spread secret information on the SNS like Twitter or Facebook. It is very serious, then young people have to be indiscreet.

Hi, I’m 003 Tigers. Your essay was very good. I think that food wasting is a big problem in the world. However, most Japanese people don’t worry about it because Japan is one of the richest countries and they don’t care that. Thanks to your writing, I could know the information about it. This problem can cause many problems such as ecological health and so on. We know that a lot of people are hungry around the world. Therefore, we should think the measures to solve it. Japanese people should feel danger because Japan can be poor country in the future.

Hi. I enjoyed information of Tokyo Skytree from your essay. I have been to Tokyo three times. Actually, I haven’t been there. However, I have a fear of heights, so I can’t see directly below from high tower. I didn’t know that Tokyo Skytree has various attractions. Tokyo Skytree has a lot of attractions that we can enjoy.

I think Tokyo Skytree is one of the most popular sightseeing spot in Tokyo, there are a lot of famous spot, so I will go them in the future with my wife.

Thank you for your essay. I have also been to Kanyukan many times, but your essay is written about its information which I didn’t know. Therefore, I could learn about it more and want to go there one more time. I think that Kaiyukan is admirable aquarium because it has a lot of characteristics and give visitors surprise and impression. I think that one of good things of Kaiyukan is that there are a lot of fishes and whale in there, especially, it has some rare them. I also want many people, especially, foreigner to visit there and get moved.

Thanks to this essay, I could get some information which I didn’t know about Tokyo Skytree. For example, it has some restaurants and an observation tower. I heard that it registered as the highest tower in the world by the Guinness World Records on November 17th 2011 for the first time. In addition, inside this tower, there is an aquarium, a few cafes, a restaurant and some stores where you can buy souvenirs which are available only at television companies. Actually, we visited in Tokyo in order to go shopping and other sightseeing, so I was interested in your essay.

Hello. I didn’t pay attention to fame of kinkaku-ji from Japanese people. Actually, many students visit there as a school trip or something, but I thought it’s more famous for foreigners. Kinkaku-ji is not merely one temple in Kyoto. It has a long history and its appearance fascinates many people. I have not visited kinkaku-ji, so I want to go to see there. Kinkaku-ji has an untold story, so I think it’s also a secret of the fame of it. Kinkaku-ji is stands out in Kyoto, so I hope more and more tourists will come to see it. Thank you for writing a excellent essay about kinkaku-ji.

I agree with you. Recently, there are a lot of type of media in the world. Such as newspaper, radio, internet, and TV. Sometimes I read article which has sensationalism, so I felt strange and stereotype. Some bad journalists write misinformation to people to get money, if they do that, news lose credibility. Relating money makes journalist wrong. These elements made media uncertain. CNN, LCN, TVA Nouvelles, and other media have airwave, so they have to inform exact information, facts, and so on. However, to avoid misinformation is very difficult in this society, because there are various viewpoints. I think all journalists are ought to consider when they give information and write article. We need media in this information society, so they have to be certain contents.
