A Glimpse of Japanese School’s Life – Part 4


|This post is written by Saladine|

Welcome back to the 4th part Japanese School’s Life! It took me a week for me to post this, because of my tight curriculum pressure (gomeeen). But fear not! I have prepared a special information that will mostly amused you all. Today, I will talk about the Japanese Schools problems. You all know, right? The School Refusal Syndrome and Bullying, that was fairly known in many Anime and Manga concept. Why does School Refusal Syndrome exist? What makes some student reluctant to come to school? What kind of bullying exist in Japan? This is the kind of question I always wonder when I watch Anime with School’s concept, particularly High Schools. Since Bullying and the School Refusal Syndrome have a kind of cause and effect relation, I will explain Bullying in Japan first. Well then, down we go!

So now, let’s go straight to the shopping ground!

|This article is written by Randy|

Hello fellas! I’m back with the new Colourful Harajuku – The Ground Zero for the Hang-Outers in Tokyo – part three. This is the newest post of this series and this time we’re going to the very heart of Harajuku, which is Takeshita Doori! Before we start, I’d like to deliver my biggest apology for all the readers of Japanesense because on the last Friday and Monday I didn’t post any article at all. I was occupied with the college things, there was a final exam for one of my subjects, however, here I am now back with my newest article! Anyway, most of you must have ever heard or seen this place before, since it’s pretty famous, but let’s explore this place one more time with me since this place; just like the other places in Tokyo; is always a changing. There are always new things here and there and that what make this place become a merry and exciting place to come by. Continue reading

Our deepest apology for the past week + 3 days


|This post is written by Saladine|

Have you notice the lack of posting rate for the past week? I should explain. During that time, Albertus and I have a little curriculum called Diplomacy in Practice. Its sort of a UN simulation, a Model of United Nation (MUN), where we become a delegate to represent our countries interest with a designated topic. Since the preparation for the simulation needs a tad research and practicing our speaking English, we have not had the time to continue our blog, since the pressure is rather big with our grade at stake. With that, we hope our dear reader would forgive us for our lack of new threads. After this post, our posting rate would come back to normal, and at Friday my friend Albertus will have a smashing thread to be presented. Look forward to it!

 
Again, we are terribly sorry for this event to turn out such way. We will maintain our level of productivity after this post.

Colourful Harajuku – The Ground Zero for the Hang-Outers in Tokyo – part 2 Meiji Shrine


|This post is written by Randy|

Holla!! This is the second part of the Colourful Harajuku series guys! This time I’m going to cover the huge and famous Meiji Shrine. A shrine in the middle of  trendy and crowded Harajuku? Seriously? Yeah, I’m serious about that. This is famous become it’s big and it’s located in the downtown Tokyo. It makes like it’s a totally in a different dimension compared to the next door, which is Takeshita Doori, but that’s what make it interesting. I guess it’d be better to go straight to the location. Let’s roll!!!

A Tiny Disaster Out of Nowhere, and A Resignation of Some Sort


|This post is written by Gilimandra|

If you’ve been lurking around the blog in the past two days or so, you’d probably noticed that a number of pictures are missing from some articles. We’ve looked into them and it turned out that pictures that have been uploaded to the authors’ facebook accounts, and are linked straight to the articles, are the ones that are gone. It’d take some time but we’ll definitely fix them as soon as possible.

On an unrelated note, some of you might have noticed that I’ve not written anything in the past two weeks. Well to be honest many real life businesses suddenly need to be taken care of so I decided to be inactive for an unspecified period of time. I might write something again in the future, but for now I simply don’t have the time to do so. Rest assured though, Saladine will cover my part about anime and manga reviews, and he’ll do them satisfyingly as he has always done. Well simply put, it’s goodbye for me folks, see you again sometime!
