– “Nameless paints” includes ten tubes that don’t have color names such as “yellow,” “blue,” or “green.” Instead, there are only spots of a particular color or colors on each tube. As you can see, the spots are also different sizes.
– In Japanese schools, students don’t take any exams until they reach grade four (the age of 10). The goal for the first three years of school is not to judge the child’s knowledge, but to establish good manners and to develop their character.
– While most schools in the world begin their academic year in September or October, in Japan, it is April that marks the start of the academic and business calendar. The first day of school often coincides with one of the most beautiful natural phenomena — the time of cherry blossom.
– In Japanese schools, students have to clean the classrooms, cafeterias, and even toilets all by themselves. Most Japanese schools do not employ janitors or custodians.
– All classmates eat in their classroom together with the teacher. This helps build positive teacher-student relationships.
– To get into a good junior high school, most Japanese students enter a preparatory school or attend private after-school workshops.
– Japanese calligraphy, or Shodo, involves dipping a bamboo brush in ink and using it to write hieroglyphs on rice paper.
– While some schools have their attire, traditional Japanese school uniform consists of a military style for boys and a sailor outfit for girls.
– At the end of high school, Japanese students have to take an exam that determines their future. A student can choose one college they would like to go to, and that college has a particular score requirement.
– Having gone through ‘examination hell,’ Japanese students usually take a little break. In this country, college is often considered the best years of a person’s life. Sometimes, Japanese people call this period a ‘vacation’ before work.

  1. I live in Malaysia, the school here have timetables and show us what books we Need to bring, in Malaysia we don’t say “grade” we say “standard”, so standard 1, 2 and 3 goes to school in the afternoon till evening and 4,5,6 in the morning to afternoon!

  2. Im an indian and i feel ashamed of indian education style and this cant even reach japanese edu. Style even after 100 yrs……children are made to byheart subjects and spit out words byhearted in exams…..and even exams begin from kindergarten level itself….no proper holidays and no extracurricular activities are encouraged….schools doesnt have proper playgrounds either….heavy partiality and discrmination exists….now a days schooling has become a business too….and knowledge gained till grade 10 wont help in ourr daily life at all….

  3. I worked as a teacher in Japan for 7 years and a lot of this information is incorrect. First of all, you are playing Chinese music in the background. Next, creativity is not an important part of schooling in japan, collectivism is. There is a saying in Japan that the nail that sticks out gets hammers down, meaning if you have a different opinion from others then you will be ostracized. Children are shouted at by teachers for hours and sometimes they are physically abused by teachers. Students do exams before grade 4. There are hardly any animals or nature in Japan. It was so bad, our school didn't even have a playground! We walked up to 30 minutes just to get to the nearest park for the children to play. They collapsed in the heat and humidity on their way back to school. Children are forced fed to eat the same meals and if they don't eat something they don't like, they will be scolded. Cram school or these "after school workshops" means that the children are constantly studying and no downtime to relax or play. Children wander the street at night after attending these workshops. Hieroglyphs are Egyptian, the caligraphy they are doing in called Kanji. The uniform is made to create conformity, not a community. There are high rates of bullying in schools and suicide. Sure there are great things about Japan but lets be realistic.

  4. admire Japan, its in the top 5 education systems globally – the ideal system must go to FINLAND – pressure is not a thing. That said the respect component would serve my violent nation well…

  5. As a Japanese, most of the information is incorrect.
    Japanese education always judge students with scores and how good they are in tests. There is no chance you can decide what you want to learn. We always have to follow what majority does and ruled by strict school rules. Japanese education is still same with stereotypical asian education.

  6. What happens to the people who don’t make the score they need to get into college? Do they go over seas to get their college education? Or do they enter into the workforce? And are they only allowed to apply to one school?

  7. I live in holland but i am currently attending studying at a very intensive school that expects alot from people. So its safe to say i have about the same level of respect and detication for my work, school and teachers.
