How do Japanese Kids Spend Their Free Time?

Thursday, September 15, 2005 Posted: 05:36 PM JST

Child Research Net has posted an article about how Japanese children spend their free time and how they think about school. The article's conclusion is a bit depressing: "Although it is thought that school should be a fun place for children, children no longer find it fun and they are studying less at home. Not only are elementary school children less interested in school, but they are studying much less than in the past."

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
