The following is a letter written by a student as a citizen of a host town, which says about the attraction of the hometown.
Ehime has "Dogo Onsen." It is a famous hot spring in Japan. Many tourists visit there every year. It is so good!
The Legend of White Heron:
Long, long ago, a white heron which had injured its leg found the hot spring. It came there to soak its leg in the spring water every day. After that, its injury was cured. People who heard about the story used the hot spring. There, they could relax and became rejuvenated. Also, sick people used the hot spring and they recovered from their illness!!
When you come to Japan, please take the time to visit this spring bath.
The following is a student's response to the topic: The person I admire the most.
The person I admire the most is Mr. Ito. The person is a junior high school teacher and an advisor of the tennis club to which I belonged. Without the person, I wouldn't have improved tennis skills as much as now. He told me to relax when I was nervous at the tournament. I like his words: "At the tournament, you can only show what you have done so far." I learned from him that if I can only do what I have done in practice, I don't have to worry too much. I took a while to get this meaning, but once I understood it, I enjoyed playing tennis very much. I also received so much advice that I couldn't write here. That is why I respect Mr. Ito.
