There are so many kinds of entrance examinations for schools in Japan.

However, there are two types of systems for entrance examinations as follows:


The first system is to require our school's grades in the entrance examination.

Mainly by introducing whom we are to the school in things such as an interview, we'll find out whether we can pass the examinations or not.


The second system is not to require our grades in the entrance examination.

It is a popular way of exams in Japan.

Mainly by taking written tests, we'll find out whether we can pass or not.

The hot days continue on over here in Tokyo.


It is said that summer heat or winter cold doesn't last after the equinox in Japan because "Higan" comes when the seasons are changing.

Higan is equinox.

The temperature suddenly rises right after the vernal equinox and falls right after the autumnal equinox.


For this entry, I'm going to tell you about the autumnal equinox.
