Graduation Ceremony

  • Today a graduation ceremony took place at my university.


    Students who would graduate were wearing hakama (Japanese skirts or culottes) or suits, and they looked excited.

    The graduation ceremony ended in the morning, and the conferment of degree was conducted at each laboratory from the afternoon.

    After that we took pictures with everybody, and each of us made some comments, then my boss and I presented memorabilia to the students.

    I was about to cry due to the reaction of the students, but I bit the inside of my cheeks.

    The day when students that I taught for one year as a teacher graduated and got out into the world was deeply emotional for me.
