Teacher Hachiyama's comment Dec 2018



I think that there are some people who get excited when Christmas or someone's birthday is approaching.
During my childhood, I used to anxiously look forward to my birthday, I was always really excited about it.
I used to get presents from friends and people around me would say "Congratulations" to me. But this is different now.
If I'm asked, "so what about now?" It is difficult to decide on a single day. How about you?

Teacher Itaya's comment Dec 2018



I live in Sapporo city in Hokkaido.
Sapporo is a popular tourist destination, but when it comes to it, I always cannot decide where to guide people and where they would enjoy.
Up to now, the top three places that people have enjoyed when they came to visit are:- The Sapporo Snow Festival, the Okurayama Ski Jump,Revolving Sushi shop Toriton. If you are interested in these, please come to Sapporo.
