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.

The following is a student's response to the question: "What can you do to solve the environmental issues?"

I think we should save electricity, gas and water.  I have two reasons for this.

First, it is essential to stop global warming.  Supplying electricity and using gas release much CO2 into the atmosphere.  So, I always turn off TV and light when I don't use them.  Also, I use extra heat for cooking.  These action is effective to save energy, I think.

Second, we have torotect various creatures and beautiful scenery.  This is because they are being broken by people who build dams and dig natural gas.  People do these things because people need a lot of energy.  I have ever seen some pictures of animals which suffer from environmental destrution.

Because of these, I think it is proper for people to save energy.

The following is a student's response to the question; "What can you do to solve the environmental issues?"

I think that the activity to reduce plastic will make a good world.  I have two reasons why I think so.
Firstly, burning the plastic emits a lot of CO2.  And the process needs a lot of time.  Therefore, theplastic is not good for the environment.

Secondly, the plastics make ocean dirty.  Sometimes, people throwthe plastic waste to the ocean.  The waste can't melt quickly.  Therefore, the plastic waste flow in the oceanfor a long time.  And, some fishes and ocean animalseat the waste, and they are killed.  Sometimes we may eat the fish whicheat the waste.  It is dangerous for our health.  So, we need to reduce the plastic thrown into the ocean.

For the above reasons, I believe that we shouldreduce theplastic waste to solve our environmental problem.

The following is a student's response to the question: "What can we do to solve the environmental issues?"

I think that 3Rs can solve the environmental issues.  "3Rs" means Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.  I'll introdue two examples.
First, you can reduce trash by using eco-bags.  Eco-bags are thing that you can use when you go shopping to a supermarket.  Eco-bags can reduce trash that would be produced by using plastic bags.  My mother didn'T use an eco-bag before knowing 3R.  But since she knew 3R, she started using an eco-bag.  I also take an eco-bag when I go shopping.

Second, you can recycle things such as paper, plastic bottles and so on.  You can throw away such things into recycling boxes.  Then,by douing so, they can be recycled and used as another thing.

I believe that 3R works for the better environment like these two examples.  3R can give the world good influence.
