Tuesday night classes

Out themes for tonight’s classes are “Have you ever” for the beginner class, and “Foundation Day” for the advanced class.

I was not aware until today that Foundation Day in Japan is in celebration of the enthronement of Emperor Jinmu, the first Japanese emperor, and was originally called Kigen-setsu. After the war the focus on the emperor changed, but the date stayed the same, because a draft version of the new constitution was aproved by MacArthur on that day.
