Students' Stories about their Golden Week Holiday 7

The following is a student's story about their GW in 2019.

My brother became a university student this spring.  He lives in Osaka now.  My brother returned to Ehime from Osaka During Golden Week.  He suddenly came back to Imabari with his friend in his friend's car to surprise the family.  My mother looked at my brother and smiled.  And she said to him, "Did you lose a bit of weight?" Then tears started spilling from my mother's eyes.  My brother asnwered with a little hesitation.  "I'm all right."  I knew my mother's feeling towards my brother and I also knew my brother's feeling towards my mother.  We had a nice time during Golden Week.

Students' Stories about their Golden Week Holiday 6

The following is a student's story about their GW holiday.

On May 6th, I ate freshwater fish and a charcoal-grilled chickens with my family in our garden.  These fish were caught by my father and brothers for my family.  The name of the fish is called "trout."  The fish is faster than killifish.  First, I ate trout.  It was tasty and it had a lot of meat because the trout was very fresh.  Second, I ate a charcoal-grilled chicken.  My father grilled them for us.  My father is kind.  The chicken was very good, too.  It made me happy, and my family made me feel relaxed.  I am full of happiness because I got to spend time with my family.  I want to go camping this summer.  I love my family.

Students' Stories about their Golden Week Holiday 5

The following is a student's story about their GW in 2019.

I ate watermelon for the first time this year on the last day of the Heisei era.  It tasted sweet because we had had very little rain so far.  I like watermelon.  It's the best of all foods.  When I took English conversation lessons online, I told my teacher about that.  Unexpectedly, watermelons are vegetable.  Actually, melon is the same type of food, too.  My mother said to me a long time ago, "If you eat a watermelon seed, sprouts will come up out of your stomach."  Everyone knows this.  I was scared to hear that.  Looking back on it now, it was a silly story.  Speaking of watermelons, "split a watermelon with a stick blind folded," "fruit punch," and so on occur to me.  I'm getting excited just thinking about it.  I will keep loving watermelons.

Students' Stories about their Golden Week Holiday 4

The following is a student's story about their GW in 2019.

I went to Osaka with my family on May 2nd.  We went to USJ, an amusement park in Osaka.  We rode many roller coasters, because I like them.  There are many cute characters there.  I like Minions very much.  I bought many of their goods and I bought my friends some souvenirs.  I hope they will be happy.  We were so excited.  But we were also tired, too.  Because there are many people there.  After riding the attractions, we ate takoyaki, popular Japanese food.  They were very delicious.
We went to Kyoto on May 3rd.  We visited Kitano-temangu, a Japanese temple.  I prayed to become a smart girl.  And we visited Byodoin.  We visited there for the first time.  Byodoin Hoodo hall is displayed on the ten yen coin.  I thought it was beautiful.
I was excited.  I had a good time.  The two days in which we went to Osaka and Kyoto were good memories.
